David Lahm Jazz Takes On Joni Mitchell
Jazz pianist David Lahm and his all-star guests, such as Randy Brecker and Lew Tabackin, uses Jazz music to reimagine the songs of Joni Mitchell, one of the century s greatest musical talents, on this imaginative CD. The individualistic, esoteric nature of Joni Mitchell s repertoire bears a natural affinity to Jazz. Now pianist David Lahm pays tribute to her in the idiom that has permeated her repertoire: Jazz.
Jazz pianist/composer David Lahm continues to demonstrate that Joni Mitchell's songs fit perfectly into the world of Jazz while maintaining their own distinctive flair with his CD David Lahm: More Jazz Takes on Joni Mitchell, a follow up to the critically acclaimed Jazz Takes on Joni Mitchell. David Lahm's first album of Mitchell compositions featured a revolving cast of players and was praised in Jazz Times as being both reverent and adventurous.
