Airs Friday, July 19, 2019, at 9 p.m. Musicians, music writers, fans and Joni Mitchell herself reflect on Joni Mitchell's most revered album, "Blue," released in 1971.
     Award-winning producer Paul Ingles hosts Joni Mitchell's BLUE, a one-hour examination of one of the most heralded albums of all time by Joni Mitchell. BLUE was rated #30 on the Rolling Stone magazine 2003 list of the Top 500 Albums of All-Time. It was the highest rated album by any female musician. The magazine also called her "one of rock's most daring and uncompromising innovators."
In all of her albums, but especially on BLUE, Mitchell put the experience of being a woman and being human on artful display through her blatantly honest and confessional lyrics, innovative open guitar tunings and jazz-inflected vocals.
     By mixing Mitchell's music from this and other Joni Mitchell albums with informed commentary from musicians, fans, music critics and archival interviews with Mitchell herself, Joni Mitchell's BLUE articulates what music lovers have found so compelling about this particular album. Special guests include music writers Ann Powers, Anthony DeCurtis, Paul Zollo, and Lydia Hutchinson. Also featured are musicians Shawn Colvin, Lucy Kaplansky, and others.
