2018 fylte Joni Mitchell 75 år, og det er drøyt 50 år siden debutalbumet hennes kom ut.

For å markere dette satte Anja Lauvdal sammen en storslått orkester for å hylle den ikoniske artisten, dette førte til to utsolgte konserter i Den Norske Opera & Ballett under Oslo Jazzfestival, før det ble fulgt opp med utsolgte konserter både på Kongsberg Jazzfestival og Maijazz for å nevne noen.

De magiske øyeblikkene som vi husker fra disse konsertene, er det nå på tide å dele med flere når noen av Norges mest spennende musikere hyller den nå 76-årige legenden Joni Mitchell på Sentrum Scene!

UConn is looking at Joni Mitchell from both sides now. The legendary singer/songwriter is the subject of a daylong virtual conference at the University of Connecticut April 9.

The event is structured around the 50th anniversary of her “Blue” album, renowned not just for Mitchell’s arresting vocal style and songwriting craft but for its sparse and unusual acoustic instrumentation which includes a dulcimer as well as acoustic guitar and piano.

The event’s organizer, Peter Kaminsky is a professor of Music Theory at UConn. “I’ll be 68 in May, and I grew up listening to her music,” he says. “In high school, her albums blew my mind. Now, she’s had a number of interviews lately, and released a five-volume archive of her music, so it’s kind of a Joni moment.

“This is an academic conference, with cutting-edge work on Joni Mitchell from scholars, but it will also have appeal for Baby Boomers.”

Con Federico Gil Solá y Alito Spina

Varias generaciones de músicos han sido cautivados e influenciados por la originalidad y excelencia de Joni Mitchell como compositora, guitarrista, pianista y cantante.

Laura Ros, prestigiosa y premiada autora, cantante y guitarrista argentina, encontró en Joni la inspiración para embarcarse en este mundo de melodías simples e inmensamente complejas, de rebeldías creativas, del desorden de las afinaciones de las guitarras para lograr ese sonido que sólo Joni podía crear.

Acompañada en batería y percusión por Federico Gil Solá (Wire Train, Divididos) y en bajo por Alito Spina (Iván Noble, Palo Pandolfo & La Hermandad), Laura se dispone a transitar el repertorio de Joni sin perderse a ella misma en el intento; una combinación difícil de lograr y Laura lo consigue. Un enorme desafío para la voz y para la musicalidad de cualquier artista. Laura se dispone a transitar el repertorio de Joni, guitarra y voz.

Afinaciones y tonalidades originales, adaptaciones a guitarra de temas compuestos en piano y dulcimer, diferentes épocas, diferentes Jonis, incluyendo temas de Clouds, Ladies of the Canyon, Blue, Court and Spark, The Hissing of Summer Lawns, Hejira, Wild Things Run Fast y Night Ride Home; todo esto reflejado en un show imperdible.

Nota sobre las afinaciones

Joni utilizó para componer más de 50 afinaciones de guitarra diferentes, muchas creadas por ella. Lo que implica, además de un ajuste de afinación entre canciones, un cambio completo de lógica en las posiciones de la mano que pulsa los acordes. Laura se propuso, nos sólo respetar las afinaciones originales sino adaptar a guitarra algunas canciones originalmente compuestas en piano o dulcimer, pensando la adaptación lejos del lugar tradicional, buscando una afinación alternativa que le diera al tema ese sonido que, en esta fantasía, Joni le hubiera dado de tocarlo en la guitarra. 21/5000 mas informacion aqui / More information here
