Review: This is a recording of a live concert tribute to Joni Mitchell, & contains several arresting, occasionally straight-up but mostly fascinating reinterpretations of Mitchell’s songs, performed by guest singers and an all-star house band. The best performances here take the song in a new direction and transmute it with sheer force of personality and there are several gems here
