Jazz Cabaret at Piano Smithfield, 14, Long Lane, Barbican, London EC1A 9PN – Concert 5
just up the road from Smithfield Market and around the corner from Barbican Tube
For the final JBGB Events Jazz Cabaret series at Piano Smithfield, and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Joni Mitchell’s seminal album “Blue” with classic songs “A Case Of You” : “My Old Man” and many more, we present the outstanding singer/pianist Joanna Eden.
Following on from her many sell out shows with Jazz at The Movies, Swinging Christmas: her Embraceable Ella show, and Joni Mitchell’s “Clouds” album plus a most recent show at The Crazy Coqs, Joanna presents this further celebration of the life and music of the most iconic US singer/song writer.
Starting as a finger-picking folkie and winding up as a jazz-savvy experimentalist, Joni Mitchell has brought a sharp eye, light touch and an agile trill of a voice to her songs, which have often dissected her romances and skewered myopic governments.
Mitchell became a critical sensation on Detroit’s folk scene, and her notices led to a series of successful engagements in New York. These early songs, ”Both Sides Now” “Eastern Rain” “The Circle Game” & ”Clouds” have become standards.
And here is a taste of what to enjoy with Joanna performing “My Old Man” from Joni's "Blue" Album.
Joanna on piano, with accomplished guitar & bass virtuoso, Andres Lafone, make a compelling musical duo
