Song of the Day #5,149: ‘A Case of You (Live)’ – Joni Mitchell

The New York Times

Continuing to showcase footage from Joni Mitchell’s recent appearance at the Newport Folk Festival…

Here’s another song from Mitchell’s greatest album, Blue, performed in a lovely trio with Brandi Carlile and Marcus Mumford. Carlile, a brilliant and powerful vocalist, can’t help but overpower Mitchell here, but the legendary songwriter tackles a few stanzas on her own and sounds great.

    I’ve always admired Brandi Carlile but found my appreciation grow even more watching her care with Joni, her respect, her tenderness, her reluctance to overpower but insistence that Joni’s dignity be first and foremost showcased. Reminded me a bit of Lady Gaga’s tenderness with Liza Minnelli at the last Oscars show. It’s gratifying and emotional to see these spectacular talents have the humility and grace to recognize the mentors who paved the way. This is a beautiful rendition of the song.
