"The diversity and durability of Joni Mitchell's music was well demonstrated Wednesday at Carnegie Hall in a tribute concert that was a model of its kind." [Reuters]

"Many artists fiddled with the songs' points of view: The alterna-rock band the Eels inverted "All I Want" from an expression of female need into an example of male withholding. Tom Rush turned Mitchell's tale of wanderlust ("Urge for Going") into a rumination on lost opportunities. Nellie McKay made "Chelsea Morning" plucky." [Daily News]

"Jimmy Scott, 80, turned in an aching, melodramatic version of "At Last" -- the standard that Mitchell covered on her 2000 "Both Sides Now" album -- and received a standing ovation for it. Bettye LaVette brought a soul-stirring gospel flavor to 'Last Chance Lost.'" [NJ.com]
