One of the most influential musicians of all time turned 70 this month – the great Joni Mitchell

Joni first reached into our lives in the mid 60s, with songs most people would have called folk music. But there was always something more than that in Joni’s music, a sense of exciting possibilities that flourished over the following decades. She seemed to be on a perpetual musical odyssey, drawing on jazz and sundry other styles to create a genre that is best described as Joni Mitchell.

Tony Hillier celebrates the occasion with songs from Joni’s jazz albums.
