Muze PNote Although Joni Mitchell's place in the popular imagination is forever cemented by the acoustic intimacy and confessional lyrics of her classic 1971 album BLUE, she was perhaps the most artistically fearless singer-songwriter of her generation, moving into musical directions most of her peers would never imagine. As a result, A TRIBUTE TO JONI MITCHELL is a varied and wide-ranging album covering almost all sides of her artistry. From Sufjan Stevens's chamber-pop reimagining of "Free Man In Paris" to Elvis Costello's dramatic, jazzy take on "Edith and the Kingpin," the artists here are similarly unafraid to take the material in new directions. Cassandra Wilson's torch-song vibe on "For the Roses" and Prince's playful reinvention of "A Case of You" are equally effective, while James Taylor's "River" and Annie Lennox's "Ladies of the Canyon" stay closer to the original material.

Professional Reviews

Spin (p.91)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] consistently fine tribute. Most remarkable is how each Joni supplicant is able to still exude his or her own essence."

No Depression (p.84)
- "[E]ach track has its own merits, and none exist only as placeholders for the real thing....A key to why this disc works is the pairing of performer and song."
