In a program first presented under the auspices of Jazz at Lincoln Center, the 1960s are explored through the work of three prolific artists: Joni Mitchell, Abbey Lincoln, and Nina Simone—all of whom have made an indelible mark in music with their unique expressions of freedom. Mitchell composed and sang about the freedom of love, Lincoln expressed freedom of her individuality and race through her lyricism, and Simone demanded freedom politically through song.

To deliver this vast repertoire, Grammy Award-winning drummer and music director Ulysses Owens, Jr. leads three vocalists: Theo Bleckmann, a Grammy–nominated jazz singer of eclectic tastes and prodigious gifts; Alicia Olatuja, “a singer with a strong and luscious tone" (New York Times); and Joanna Majoko, a naturally gifted and multicultural artist born to German and Zimbabwean parents.

For the past two years Kiki Ebsen has enjoyed bringing the diverse catalog of Joni Mitchell's songs to those who resonate in the elegant music and profound lyrics. Kiki's Joni Mitchell Project has received wide acclaim in performances from intimate jazz clubs to outdoor festivals.

You'll enjoy this special evening and the genius of the Joni Mitchell songbook at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center. Kiki solos on piano on "Both Sides Now" and "Case of You," and shifts to guitar on "Coyote" and "Chelsea Morning," among others. You'll enjoy her band arrangements of "Woodstock," "Big Yellow Taxi," and "Free Man in Paris," "Blonde in the Bleachers," "Twisted," and "Sex Kills."

From Joni's earliest years to her later, more edgy, material, Kiki and her band pay tribute to Joni Mitchell, her music, style, originality and pure artistry. Featuring: Kiki Ebsen-vocals/keys/guitar, Terry Wollman-guitar, Grant Geissman-guitar, Steve Lawrence-bass and Matt Starr-drums.

Tickets are $50 and include a dessert and wine reception before the show. Get tickets here.
