Joni Mitchell's Music had an extraordinary effect on the people who heard her vocal genius.
Her music is timeless and still brings tears to the eyes of those who have penetrated her lyrics into their own lives and relationships.
With the carousel of emotions, her lyrics are being relived over and over again as we prepare for an evening of Joni Mitchell music, The first of it's kind on the Island of Maui.
One of her most recognized lyric..."You Pave Paradise, and put up a parking lot" was actually written in Hawaii when Joni was here in the Hawaiian Islands. She looked out into the beautiful of Hawaii's Natural Paradise and had to keep looking and looking beyond the massive parking lot from her hotel room to see Hawaii's beauty.
The lyrics were born there and then.
It's fun to listen to Joni's 26 albums and 207 original songs. You will hear many creative, original lyrics that point us to environmental awareness. The song Lakota brings awareness to the plights of Native Americans, The Verses in Cherokee Louise, hit us deeply with her poignant portrait of a sexually abused friend of hers growing up in Canada.
This list could go on & on, as Joni had a keen sense of awareness and profound ability to convey to us through her songs (and paintings) what was real in her life, and reflectively in ours.
I spent the last three months researching Joni's life and music. I am producing an event on Maui in Honor of Joni Mitchell and the 4 + decades of music that she has gifted us with.
Rolling Stone Magazine has voted Joni Mitchell The greatest Female Songwriter/Vocalist of All Time.
