Hear Demos & Outtakes of Joni Mitchell’s Blue on the 50th Anniversary of the Classic Album

When Joni Mitchell released Blue in 1971, she revealed herself to the world as a poet with a hard-boiled interior life. The album, writes Rolling Stone, challenged the image many had of her as an innocent flower child. “The West Coast feminine ideal” was a role “Mitchell hadn’t asked for and did not want.” Of her writing of the album, she said in a 2013 interview, “They better find out who they’re worshipping. Let’s see if they can take it. Let’s get real.” Get real she did, shocking the...

Whicker: Terance Mann reaches peak, brings Clippers close to another

It takes about 15 minutes, depending on the line, to ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Terance Mann needed less than a second to scale its NBA equivalent. He didn’t do it for the view. He did it at the end of a disjoined Clippers possession late in Wednesday’s fourth quarter, in which the shot clock narrowed the viable options to one. He had to climb Rudy Gobert, the Frenchman known as the Stifle Tower. Nothing much was riding on this. The Western Conference semifinals were tied 2-2, and Kawh...

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue proving as good as advertised at game of adjustments

When the Clippers introduced Tyronn Lue as their next head coach, Steve Ballmer said he especially was impressed by the coach’s reputation as a thinker and a tinkerer. “Not that I’m an expert in game management and Xs and Os,” Ballmer, the Clippers’ owner, said last October. “But all of our staff says Ty sees the game as good or better as anybody that you’ll ever meet, which I think is awesome. “I tell you,” Ballmer added, “Ty’s my kind of guy. He wants to move, move, move, learn new things, abs...

Clippers converge on Donovan Mitchell as Jazz’s injury concerns grow

LOS ANGELES — Moments after taking a hobbled jog back to the visiting locker room, Donovan Mitchell slipped back through the Utah Jazz bench and slung an arm over the shoulder of his head coach. It looked at least a little like the 24-year-old was lobbying for a return to the court as the Jazz trailed in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of their second-round playoff series against the Clippers. But as he tried to work Quin Snyder on Saturday night, Kawhi Leonard was working on the court: The Clipper...

“No Problem” is Shirking Your Responsibility

“When you say, “no problem,” you’re letting yourself off the hook, refusing to acknowledge what was said and closing the door for a useful interaction. Because there is a problem. Exploring what the problem is is far better than denying it.”This, from consummate marketer and author, Seth Godin.I am as guilty as anyone in not coaching by giving immediate constructive feedback. When someone apologizes for an error I’m the first to say “no problem.”Thursday night, Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz...

Clippers, down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz, have issues on both ends

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time the Clippers fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series, back on May 25, they made it a point to express their unwavering confidence. Reggie Jackson wore a T-shirt adorned with a happy face to his virtual postgame news conference and signed off that night by saying: “No worries. Remember, no worries!” Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue also was unequivocally calm, shrugging off the Clippers’ first two losses at Staples Center: “I am not worried about it,” he said. “You gotta win f...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Clippers vs. Jazz live updates: Game 2 of NBA second-round playoff series

Kawhi Leonard and the fourth-seeded Clippers will look to even their second-round playoff series against the Western Conference’s top-seeded Utah Jazz tonight at Vivint Arena. All-Star Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 45 points in their Game 1 victory on Tuesday. Leonard paced the Clippers with 23 points while fellow All-Star Paul George added 20 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double.

Clippers, Jazz are out to right last postseason’s wrongs

The second-round Western Conference playoff pairing that tips off Tuesday at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City will feature the top-seeded Jazz, the fourth-seeded Clippers and the specter of the 2020 Denver Nuggets. Both the Clippers and Jazz were on the wrong side of history in the Florida bubble, both victims of a Denver team that became the first in NBA history to come all the way back from a 3-1 deficit in consecutive playoff series – starting in the first round against Utah and then in the con...

Hear Joni Mitchell’s Earliest Recording, Rediscovered After More than 50 Years

How excited would you be to listen to a recording, made at an AM radio station in 1963, labeled “JONI ANDERSON AUDITION TAPE”? If you know much about the singer-songwriters of the mid-20th century, you’d be quite excited indeed. For Joni Anderson is none other than Joni Mitchell, who under that married name would go on to become one of the most influential solo performers to come out of the folk-music scene. Not that she prized the designation that thus accompanied her to stardom: “I was...

Ahead of Lakers’ 2-game set with Jazz, injuries seize the spotlight

In another season, an alternate universe where the world and the NBA are set in their normal rhythms, the weekend would be ushering in something special: a two-game series between the Lakers and the Utah Jazz, each with a legitimate chance to play for the Larry O’Brien trophy this summer. Those teams will still meet, on Saturday afternoon and Monday night, but the billing of two Western Conference contenders squaring off is significantly diminished by the players who won’t be suiting up. The Jaz...

Clippers hope for reinforcements in rematch with Jazz

The good news for the Clippers is that they won’t have to wait long for another shot at trying to solve the thousand-piece puzzle that is the Utah Jazz. The even better news is that they could have some of their own pieces back on Friday to help do it: Paul George (bone edema right toe) and Nicolas Batum (concussion) have been upgraded to questionable after missing their past seven and two games, respectively. Kawhi Leonard (left lower leg contusion) also is considered questionable, as he was be...

How Joni Mitchell’s Song of Heartbreak, “River,” Became a Christmas Classic From Elvis’ “Blue Christmas” to Tom Waits’ “Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis” to the Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York,” the most honest Christmas songs freely acknowledge the holiday’s dark underbelly. There are always those for whom the holidays are times of heartbreak, which, as we know, makes for better songwriting than tinsel, elves, and stockings. Near the top of any list of miserable Christmas songs sits Joni Mitchell’s holiday c...

Jon Hamm Plays Clueless Break-In Victim In Eels “Are We Alright Again” Video

Jon Hamm, one of this century’s most iconic TV stars, seems to be kicking off a string of appearances in funny alt-rock videos. Last month, Hamm had a cameo in Jeff Tweedy’s “Gwendolyn” clip. Today, Hamm’s got the starring role in the video for “Are We Alright Again,” a joint from the new Eels album. He plays a big fan of Eels, and he’s pretty convincing. In director Greg Barnes’ video, Hamm rocks an Eels shirt and lives in a house full of Eels memorabilia. He get so into listening to “Are We ...

Nuggets edge Jazz to complete comeback from 3-1 down, will play Clippers

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Nikola Jokic made the tiebreaking basket with 27 seconds left and the Denver Nuggets advanced to the second round of the playoffs by the slimmest of margins, beating the Utah Jazz 80-78 in Game 7 on Tuesday night when Mike Conley’s 3-pointer spun out at the buzzer. The Nuggets became the 12th team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series, but only after they blew a 19-point lead in this game. After Jokic’s basket, the Jazz got the ball to Donovan Mit...

NBA players, coaches keep speaking up for Breonna Taylor and Black Lives Matter

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — It’s been possibly the most oft-repeated answer to any question asked in the NBA bubble. And it rarely matters what the question is. Justice for Breonna Taylor, players have said. Many, many players. There’s been a movement afoot at the Disney campus of players using their media time to fan the heat of attention on Taylor, who was killed by three Louisville police officers who have not been charged with a crime. She has since become one of the most prominent faces in Ame...

listening to joni: #15: turbulent indigo

Turbulent Indigo, 1994 Front Cover Turbulent Indigo is a rich album, one that demands repeated listening. Every time I hear it, I discover new sounds and meanings, and I find that it has slyly become one of my most beloved of Joni's work.The name of the album is itself enigmatic. Many reviewers have noted that it echoes an earlier masterpiece, since the colour indigo is a form of blue. I don't find much in common between 1972's Blue and this one. On Turbulent Indigo, the music is spars...

Louise Goffin talks famous parents and finding her own place in the music world

The daughter of legendary songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin, Louise Goffin spent her childhood and adolescence in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of the L.A. music scene in the late ’60s and ’70s. Her live debut came when she was 17, opening up for Jackson Browne in 1977 at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. Her first album “Kid Blue” arrived on the major label Elektra/Asylum in 1979 before she’d even turned 20. Yet while those early memories used to remind Goffin more of struggle and difficu...

listening to joni: #14: night ride home

Night Ride Home, 1991 Although I mostly enjoyed Joni's previous album, Chalk Mark In a Rainstorm, I still harboured a nagging doubt and vague dislike.Both Chalk Mark (1988) and Dog Eat Dog (1985) didn't feel like Joni to me. I don't mean that they didn't repeat some formula or sound. I hope it's obvious that I don't approach music from that point of view. Those two albums had a cold, flat, pop-synth feel.Re-reading my posts about them, I noticed I wrote almost exclusively about the lyrics. It w...

The Expansive Vocal Range of Joni Mitchell: From the Early to Later Years

It’s quite a testament to Joni Mitchell’s musicianship that her “voice is arguably the most underrated aspect of her music.” So writes a contributor to The Range Place, an online project that analyzes the vocal ranges of popular singers. This is not to say that Mitchell’s voice is underrated—far from it—but her adventurous, deeply personal lyricism and experimental songwriting are how she is most often distinguished from the cohort of 60s singer-songwriters who emerged from the folk scen...

Watch Joni Mitchell Sing an Immaculate Version of Her Song “Coyote,” with Bob Dylan, Roger McGuinn & Gordon Lightfoot (1975)

Joni Mitchell doesn’t like to do interviews, but once she starts to open up, she really opens up, not only about her own struggles but about her feelings towards her fellow artists. These are often decidedly negative. Maybe she took a cue from her personal hero, Miles Davis (who, it turned out secretly owned all her albums). Mitchell matched his level of caustic commentary in 2010 when she told the L.A. Times that Bob Dylan “is not authentic at all. He’s a plagiarist, and his name and vo...
