Tierney Sutton Band: the Joni Mitchell project
February 7, 2014
Joni Mitchell’s lyrics and music were unique, evocative and definitive from their first note. As timely poetry—the songs entwine a universal voice through personal narrative. And as music, there is rich melodic and harmonic movement, plateaus for narrative and unresolved chords that reflect the emotional place of the story.
After spending years immersed in the many hues of Joni’s music, American Songbook jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton’s Joni Mitchell project aspires to “paint a little ‘Blue’ portrait.” With TSB band virtuosos Christian Jacob on piano, Trey Henry on drums, and Kevin Axt on bass, the evening will be as intimate as a 1960s coffeehouse.
