Maura:  I have been haunted by Joni Mitchell for years. Since college days, when my room-mate played her hits over and over on CDs, sang them with a guitar, or played them on the piano. The piano sat where most people’s TVs sat. Her lyrics haunt me too. I’ve always been one for lyrics. They roll around on my tongue till I get used to them.  

It has been so cool to finally get a chance to sing some of her tunes with great musicians who love this music nearly more than me!

“I want to knit you a sweater,

I want to write you a love letter, 

I want to make you feel better,

I want to make you feel free”
