12 Songs, 51 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It seems as if all unique vocalists must at some point try their hands at torch songs and jazz standards. Working with her ex-husband Larry Klein and orchestra arranger and conductor Vince Mendoza, Joni Mitchell here explored songs that she felt “traced the progress of the modern relationship.” Naturally, Mitchell excels at songs where love has hit on a blue mood, while touches of joy are felt in the restructuring of two Mitchell classics, “A Case of You” and “Both Sides Now.” The album won two GRAMMY® Awards in 2001: Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album and, for the title track, Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s).
