Tierney Sutton: After Blue - The Joni Mitchell Project

 

After nine CDs over 20 years with her longstanding Tierney Sutton Band, the vocalist decided to leave her comfort zone and leap off the cliff by tackling an homage to the revered pop singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. With After Blue, her most daring and revealing project to date, Sutton puts her own unique stamp on familiar Mitchell tunes going back to 1969's "Both Sides Now" and 1970's "Big Yellow Taxi" and including more recent numbers like 1979's The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines and 1982's jivey "Be Cool," along with Joni's haunting take on the standard "Don't Go to Strangers" from her 2000 orchestral album, Both Sides Now. A project she's considered for a long time, Tierney says, "Thank you Joni Mitchell for your inspiration, your excellence. All I can hope for here is to scratch the surface of your deep legacy."
