Subject: Review of New Joni Mitchell Album
If you haven't heard 'Both Sides Now' yet, do it....do it now! It has some blissful arrangements of some fabulous old songs ( well, old to me) and a couple of her own, well known songs like Both Sides Now. Stormy Weather is one of the best arrangements I've ever heard and even though Ms Mitchell doesn't throw her voice around the high registers the way she used to, it's developed a rich, smoky tone that is wonderful to listen to( must be her 50 a day habit). Anyhow, as a Joni Mitchell fan I loved it but even people not familiar with her stuff would, I think, like this album which also features Herbie Hancock and arrangements by Vince Mendoza. What are you waiting for? Go and buy it!
