Performer: Kiki Ebsen’s Joni Mitchell Project
For the past two years Kiki Ebsen has enjoyed bringing the diverse catalog of Joni Mitchell’s songs to those who resonate in the elegant music and profound lyrics. With her solo CD, “Cool Songs, Vol. 2: The Music of Joni Mitchell,” Kiki presents listeners with fresh arrangements and honest emotion in the songs that personally touched her heart from the first time she heard them played on vinyl. She found audiences agreeing that “Joni’s music must be played (and heard) often.”
Kiki’s Joni Mitchell Project has received wide acclaim in performances from intimate jazz clubs to outdoor festivals. Kiki solos on piano on “Both Sides Now” and “Case of You,” and shifts to guitar on “Coyote” and “Chelsea Morning,” among others. Enjoy her band arrangements of “Woodstock,” “Big Yellow Taxi,” and “Free Man in Paris,” from the best knowns songs as much as you’ll love digging deep with tracks like “Blonde in the Bleachers,” “Twisted,” and “Sex Kills.”
From Joni’s earliest years to her later, more edgy, material, Kiki and her band pay tribute to Joni Mitchell, her music, style, originality and pure artistry.
