First, we consider Chet Baker through the lens of June Bisantz. She's a Connecticut-based vocalist and visual artist who's tackling his songbook as part of the Litchfield Jazz Festival.
Then we dig into a beautiful new book that celebrates the poetry of Joni Mitchell's songs. Lisa and John Sornberger brought together a big group of creative people to write about their favorite lyrics.
We're also joined by folk singer Kate Callahan who's had her music and world shaped by Joni Mitchell.
There will be a celebration of Joni Mitchell and this new book at the UConn Co-op next month.
