The trumpeter’s interest in the songbooks of pop music writers started with his album of music by The Pearlfishers. For a second edition, he’s turning to one of the greatest songwriters of the past 50 years, Joni Mitchell. He’ll naturally turn those quirky melodies about romance, confusion, disillusionment and joy into new pearls for jazz audiences to enjoy. Steele’s approach is to savour the simplicity; not stray too far from the melody; look for beauty; and create tunes that glow and sparkle with warmth and affection. It’s a beautiful concept that not many musicians could pull off, but with David Milligan (piano), Calum Gourlay (bass) and Alyn Cosker (drums) he does it! More information here.

In celebration of the 75th birthday year of Joni Mitchell, the 50th anniversary of Woodstock and her ongoing 7-year celebration of the music of Joni Mitchell, singer and pianist HANNAH REIMANN presents a new staging of Mitchell’s work, BOTH SIDES NOW.

Featuring Reimann as lead vocalist, pianist and dulcimer with guest instrumentalist MICHELE TEMPLE (Pere Ubu) on guitar and backing vocals, the show presents 19 songs from the albums: Song to a Seagull, Clouds, Ladies of the Canyon, Blue, For the Roses and Court and Spark, and readings from David Yaffe’s bestseller, Reckless Daughter: A Portrait of Joni Mitchell. More information here.

Joni's Soul began as a collaboration between "from-the-heart" London soul singer Gina Foster and former longtime Van Morrison guitarist Ronnie Johnson, enlisting some of UK's very finest players with a shared love for an artist they consider to be one of the greatest singer/songwriters and guitar innovators of the last half century.

Coyote, Hejira, Edith and the Kingpin, The Hissing of Summer Lawns, A Case of You, Trouble Child, Help Me and Gina’s gorgeous version of Both Sides Now - it’s through songs like these that the band explore the unique songwriting and gift of performance Joni revealed in her iconic albums Blue, Court and Spark, Hejira, The Hissing of Summer Lawns and beyond …

Drawing on their own emotional response to these songs Joni’s Soul have looked beyond merely the faithful reproduction of the Joni Mitchell songbook to shine a light on the most soulful aspects of her words and music. The band's recently released cd 'Shades Of Joni' passionately illustrates their well-defined and warm interpretations of some of the finest songwriting and performance in music history.

Gina Foster - vocals, Ronnie Johnson and Patrick Johnson (guitars), Graham Harvey (keyboards), Steve Pearce (bass), Richard Bailey (drums). More information here.

Multi-award winning singer, Ian Shaw, fuses the words and music of two of popular music's genius giants, Joni Mitchell and the much missed David Bowie. Traversing the mammoth back catalogue of these legendary artists, this is an unmissable and highly personal journey from the endless summers of the early seventies and New York's East Village to "our own ideals" of love, hope and the presence of the darker truths of recent times. These highly charged shows promise tears, laughter...and simply great songwriting. More information here.

The Court and Spark show will take you on a musical journey that will probably mirror your own journey through life, from Ladies of the Canyon, Clouds, For the Roses, Blue and Court and Spark, to the cool, evocative sounds of Hissing of Summer Lawns, Hejira, Mingus and Turbulent Indigo. More information here.

The Joni Mitchell Songbook brings together a group of top-drawer musicians, led by singer Sarah Miller and keyboard player Aidan Goldstraw, whose devotion to the artist’s back catalogue shines through in performance. This is no ordinary tribute act – it’s an evening spent together, exploring the work of a musical genius.

This comprehensive survey of Joni’s career includes landmarks such as Big Yellow Taxi (her most covered song), River and A Case of You (both from the breakthrough album Blue), the radio hits of Help Me and Free Man In Paris (from double-platinum Court and Spark) and the jazz-infused stylings of In France They Kiss On Main St (The Hissing of Summer Lawns) and Coyote (Hejira). More information here.

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile will perform Joni‘s album Blue during her Walt Disney Concert Hall debut in Los Angeles on October 14. Carlile’s one-time special concert event has been dubbed “Songs Are Like Tattoos.”

Here’s what Brandi had to say about the upcoming show:

“Blue might very well be the best album ever made. I feel the need to play this masterpiece in its entirety so that I can honor Joni Mitchell and the way this album brought me into myself, but also so that I can hear it live too! My soul will be listening alongside yours.

If Joni is right and “songs are like tattoos,” then these songs are an indelible part of our collective story and coming of age. ‘Part of you pours out of me in these lines from time to time.’ Let’s do Blue. Hearts on sleeves and voices raised. Let’s do this one for Joni.” More information here.
