In November, 2018, L. A.’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion hosted 3000 patrons for a celebration of Joni Mitchell’s 75th birthday. The 2 hour plus concert featured some iconic musicians to sing and play Joni’s music. Most people will recognize some of her popular hits like Coyote, Court and Spark, River, A Case of You and Big Yellow Taxi among them. But some of the best moments are when some of Mitchell’s deep tracks are resurrected by some perhaps unlikely artists providing a fresh approach to the music. Nothing here is a radical change but something more modest. Recognizable but new. Most of the artists will scatter a couple songs throughout the performance and all together in the finale (Big Yellow Taxi). Joni herself is on the side, a couple rows back taking it all end. Here are some of the performers: Norah Jones, Rufus Wainwright, Diana Krall, Emmylou Harris, Chaka Khan, James Taylor, Seal and Brandi Carlile who accompanies a rare performance by Kris Kristofferson who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. The performances are all wonderful, but I was most surprised by La Marisoul, a Latin signer who accompanies Los Lobos on a couple songs (“Nothing Can Be Done” and “Dreamland”). Beautiful songs, beautiful voices.
