O’s Notes: Songs of Shadow, Songs of Light is a celebration of the songs of Joni Mitchell by jazz vocalist Laurie Antonioli. Laurie was inspired by Joni when she was a teenager as many of us were. While tooling around with pianist Matt Clark they rediscovered their passion for Joni’s iconic works and this album is the outgrowth. Dave Mac Nab (g), Sheldon Brown (reeds), John Shifflett (b) and Jason Lewis (d) join Matt and Laurie to recreate the magic. Fans of Mitchell’s work will appreciate and enjoy their arrangements. Our favorites are “Rainy Night House” and “River”.
