Baby Boomers: Joni Mitchell Turns 65

A belated birthday wish to Joni Mitchell who turned 65 on November 7.

For more than four decades now, this native of Canada, a self described painter who was sidetracked by circumstance to a career in music has been with us as a singer, songwriter, musician, innovator, and poet.

Long categorized as a folk singer, this characterization, if we think about it, overlooks nearly all of her work since 1974. Sixteen Grammy Nominations, nine times a winner, with seven of those wins since 1995.

It is as a musician grounded in folk music though that we remember her best, but oh my, that woman could have played rhythm with anyone, and in fact she did.

This week's video clip is from The Dick Cavett Show, August 19, 1969, the Tuesday after Woodstock.

2 minutes and 54 seconds, a naked and flawless performance of Chelsea Morning.
