Description

When singer, musician, and broadcast journalist Malka Marom had the opportunity to interview Joni Mitchell in 1973, she was eager to reconnect with the performer that she'd first met late one night in 1966 at a Yorkville coffeehouse. More conversations followed over the next four decades of friendship, and it was only after Joni and Malka completed their last recorded interview, in 2012, that Malka discovered the heart of their discussions: the creative process. In Joni Mitchell: In Her Own Words, Joni and Malka follow this thread through seven decades of life and art, discussing the influence of Joni's childhood, love and loss, playing dives and huge festivals, acclaim and criticism, poverty and affluence, glamorous triumphs and tragic mistakes.

Professional reviews

"Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell would feel comfortable unleashing her inner demons only in a format like this: Her longtime friend and colleague Malka MaromÑwho met Mitchell for the first time in 1966Ñconducts a course of interviews over several years, serving more as MitchellÕs confidante than interlocutor. At times, the women come off like a chatty coffee klatch, freely dishing and swapping intimacies, a tone that may leave listeners feeling like theyÕre outside of the conversation. But Carrington MacDuffie, a vocalist in her own right, carries the load well, capturing the pairÕs chummy tone as they swap heavily female-centric insights and engage in poetic free flights. Given MitchellÕs well-known shy nature, this is the closest her fans are going to get to a tell-all bio anytime soon. J.S.H. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
