Canada Joni Mitchell — Love Has Many Faces: A Quartet, a Ballet, Waiting to Be Danced
Ψ  Rozmanitost, představivost a integrita.
Ψ  “Joni Mitchell always has been, and will always be, utterly irreplaceable” — Rolling Stone
Ψ  Mitchell Curates Four–Disc Collection Featuring 53 Newly Remastered Songs Recorded Throughout Her Landmark Career That Evoke Her Vision Of Love
Ψ  Tato kompilace je velkým překvapením. Ještě nedávno tvrdila, že její hlas by to nezvládl kvůli komplikaci se stlačeným hrtanem. Mitchell se nedávno musela vypořádat ještě s většími zdravotní problémy. V současné době je léčena na Morgellonové syndrom, kontroverzní nemocí, kde trpící věří, že jejich těla jsou napadena parazity, i když nic nenasvědčuje tomu, že tomu tak je. (Los Angeles Times 22. dubna 2010)
Ψ  Mitchell nyní investuje svůj čas obětem Morgellonové syndromu, mluví o otázkách životního prostředí a vytváření vizuálního umění. Popsala Morgellon syndrom jako "pomalého, nepředvídatelného zabijáka", ale řekla, že je odhodlána bojovat proti této nemoci. “Mám obrovskou vůli žít: Prošla jsem pandemií, přežila jsem dětskou obrnu, takže vím, jak konzervativní a zranitelné může tělo být.” Podle Mitchell, Morgellons je často chybně diagnostikována jako "klam parazitů", a trpícím touto nemocí je nabízena psychiatrická léčba. Mitchell řekla, že chce odejít z hudebního průmyslu s cílem pracovat na poskytování pomoci lidem s diagnózou Morgellonové, aby získali větší důvěryhodnost.

Description:
♠   LOS ANGELES — Joni Mitchell’s new four–disc boxed set LOVE HAS MANY FACES: A QUARTET, A BALLET, WAITING TO BE DANCED was first conceived as the music to a ballet about love. But after spending 18 months trying to distill everything she’d written about love — and the lack of it — down to a single disc, the influential singer-songwriter abandoned the ballet. “I wanted the music to feel like a total work — a new work. No matter what I did, though, at that length, it remained merely a collection of songs,” she writes in the set’s liner notes.
♠   Undaunted, Mitchell did not give up. Instead, she continued to sequence her songs, determined to prove to herself that what she was after was possible. After two years, she had created a four–act ballet based on the 53 songs that make up this inspiring collection. “I am a painter who writes songs. My songs are very visual. The words create scenes… What I have done here is to gather some of these scenes (like a documentary filmmaker) and by juxtaposition, edit them into a whole new work,” the artist writes.
♠   LOVE HAS MANY FACES will be available on November 17 for a suggested list price of $59.98. It truly is an artist–curated collection. Mitchell selected the material from 40 years of recording. She designed the package. The package is a book containing 53 lyrical poems, six new paintings, and an autobiographical text illuminating her recording process. It is funny, mystical, and informative.
♠   Mitchell organized the music into different thematic acts, which allowed her songs to interact with one another in a whole new way. The process, she says, was a lot like making a film. “I had forty years of footage to review. Then, suddenly, scenes began to hook up. Then series began to form. Instead of it being an emotional roller coaster ride as it was before — crammed into one disc — themes began to develop. Moods sustained. I was getting there…When this long editorial process (two years) finally came to rest, I had four ballets or a four–act ballet — a quartet. I also had a box set.”
♠   Long time listeners should find the music familiar but fresh. There has been a lot of sonic adjustment. Newcomers to this music have an adventure before them — a journey into highly–original, harmonically innovative, unusually rhythmic music. Some of the greatest musicians in the world are gathered here — supporting this emotionally charged exploration of love’s many faces.
“See how the feeling comes and goes
Like the pull of moons on tides
Now I am surf raising
Now parched ribs of sand at his side”  — From “A Strange Boy”
In french:
♠   Ce n'est pas le premier coffret consacré à l'oeuvre de Joni Mitchell. Celui–ci a la particularité de résulter de choix personnels de Joni, à la fois thématiques (cf le titre: les multiples facettes de l'amour!) et musicaux ( l'aspect jazzy de l'oeuvre est privilégié au détriment de la période folk, carrément mise de côté...). Certains titres ont été remixés pour cette édition.
Review by Mark Deming; Score: ****
Ψ  In the '60s and '70s, Joni Mitchell was widely seen as the archetypal female singer/songwriter, the original Lady from the Canyon who sang passionate but laid–back songs full of organic wisdom about love and life. Of course, that image was never an accurate portrait of the sort of artist Mitchell was — emotionally she was never hesitant to cut deep, even on languid acoustic numbers, and her skills as a lyricist, vocalist, and guitarist were estimable. One might imagine that the ambitious, marvelously crafted jazz–pop of 1974's Court and Spark was an effort by Mitchell to prove she was more than just a moody girl with a guitar, and much of her subsequent music of the '70s and '80s was not just an expression of her eclectic muse, but an ongoing project to show off the range and intelligence of her musical impulses. Mitchell has long been overdue for a career–spanning box set, and she's finally delivered one with Love Has Many Faces: A Quartet, a Ballet, Waiting to Be Danced, a four–disc 53–song collection compiled, annotated, and designed by Mitchell with the stated intent of dealing with love and human interaction in its many forms. At the same time, Love Has Many Faces is a writ–large summary of Mitchell's recorded legacy that finds her offering an idiosyncratic view of her career. A number of Mitchell's most popular songs from her early days, including "Big Yellow Taxi," "The Circle Game," "Chelsea Morning," "Cactus Tree," and "Woodstock," are missing from the program, with Mitchell putting a greater emphasis on material from largely overlooked albums like Wild Things Run Fast, Chalk Mark in a Rain Storm, and Night Ride Home. (The fact Mitchell wants us to recall "Dancin' Clown," an embarrassing duet with Billy Idol, is little short of astonishing.) Mitchell also presents several major selections in the orchestral re–recordings she created for the album Travelogue, and as she did on themed compilations such as Dreamland and Songs of a Prairie Girl, Mitchell has remixed a few of the tracks on this set. As a consequence, while most box sets are intended to summarize the career of an artist, Love Has Many Faces instead presents Joni's own preferred perspective on her music, where the jazzier and more stylistically ambitious creations take center stage and Joni the Folkie barely exists. Some fans might find this set's point of view to be a bit curious, especially since it favors less popular (and often less acclaimed) material over Mitchell's more celebrated compositions, but in this context, many of these songs play significantly better than they did on her uneven projects of the '80s and '90s, and the lyrical strength and bold musical vision that inform this music are genuinely remarkable on nearly every tune. Ψ  For many fans, Love Has Many Faces may not be the Joni Mitchell box set they want, but as a summation of her own musical world–view, it's a powerful and revealing accomplishment. :: http://www.allmusic.com/album/
Biography
Ψ  Joni's remarkable life has been documented in thousands of articles, interviews, press releases, music, and art over the course of her career. The JoniMitchell.com library contains 2743 titles and counting, including articles written and interviews conducted exclusively for the website that cannot be found anywhere else. The Chronology of Appearances is another comprehensive database that provides the dates and venues of Joni's performances chronicling every known appearance from Joni's coffee house days to some of the biggest venues in the world.
Ψ  It is probably safe to say that the Library and Chronology of Appearances contain the most exhaustive collection of publically available information in existence about Joni Mitchell. Sifting through all of this material to distill an accurate biography of the artist is an impossible task and no–one but Joni herself knows all of the incidents, feelings, thoughts, motivations — the many facets of the personality that make up both the inner and the outer life of this complex human being. But by utilizing the site's invaluable resources, supplementing it with material from books and other people who have played important parts in her life, and, of course, by listening to the wealth of incredible music she has created, we at JoniMitchell.com feel that it is possible to search out the most reliable and comprehensive information available to piece together a portrait of the great artist.
Ψ  In 1996 Wally Breese, the creator of JoniMitchell.com, began writing a biography series that he published on the website in 1998. Planned to be an ongoing and complete project, his untimely death in 2000 put an end to his goal.
Ψ  In 2012, JoniMitchell.com commissioned a continuation of the project from long–time Joni fan Mark Scott. It was decided that, due to all the new information that had come to light in the past decade and a half, Mark would start again at the beginning with a new biography series. We present both works here in their (so far) entirety.
Ψ  On the season premiere of the CBS–TV series "Chicago Hope" on September 16, Joni's song "A Case Of You" was featured prominently. Dr. Diane Grad (played by actress Jayne Brook) sang it to a small child being operated on by Dr. Billy Kronk (played by actor Peter Berg). Billy asked Diane which Joni Mitchell album the song was from, and she told him Blue. "Depressing" he said. "Good" but "chick music" he called it. She told him that she had taken the album to show and tell in fifth grade. "Serious child, weren't you" he commented. At the end of the episode as Diane and Billy kiss goodbye, a verse from Joni's original version was heard. "Oh, I could drink a case of you and still be on my feet."
Ψ  In the category of FINALLY, it was announced on September 18 that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 1997 inductees would be:
The Bee Gees
Buffalo Springfield
Crosby, Stills & Nash
The Jackson 5
Joni Mitchell
Parliament/Funkadelic
The Young Rascals
Bill Monroe (early influence)
Mahalia Jackson (early influence)
Syd Nathan (nonperformer)
Ψ  With their action in inducting Joni, the Hall somewhat redeemed itself in my book. After 4 frustrating years, they made up for a bit of the sexism and conformity in their process and accepted Joni into the ranks where she belongs. Joni is the first Canadian woman ever inducted. Reports stated that the ceremony would be held on May 15, 1997 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland.
“I had a man in summertime
with summer colored skin
And not another girl in town
my darling's heart could win
But when the leaves fell trembling down
And bully winds came around and rubbed their faces in the snow
He got the urge for going, and I had to let him go
He got the urge for going
when the meadow grass was turning brown
And summertime was falling down
and winter was closing in...”
