Tuesday Joni Mitchell is releasing a CD of new songs, not revisits of old material, well, maybe one song is a revisit. I love Joni’s music and have been a fan since I was in junior high. I’m excited. And Herbie Hancock is also releasing a new CD of covers of Joni songs featuring singers Tina Turner, Norah Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae, Luciana Souza and Leonard Cohen. Pretty good times for fans of Joni. Pretty good times for Joni, you can read all about the ballet in Canada written around her songs here and here, the art exhibit of her work in NYC here and of course the new CD here. The Joni Mitchell website is pretty amazing for the depth of material available. If you’re at all interested in her work, check there first. There is a promotional video about all this and you can watch it here:
