A celebration of the Grammy-Winning singer-songwriter Steve Goodman, one of America's most influential, if underrated, troubadors.
This is the show The New York Times called "an affectionate, thoroughly researched musical biography" and "a poignant, easygoing tribute."
Reviewer Stephen Holden also said Elaine and her three-piece band (piano, bass, viola) "conjured a timeless, rambling folk-blues ambience."
While some have called Joni Mitchell “the queen of confessional songwriters,” Elaine focuses with her characteristic wit on Mitchell’s “cool, in-control” side. The songlist, which ranges from the 1930s to the 1990s, also includes numbers by two of Mitchell’s singer-songwriter boyfriends and a couple of Great American Songbook standards, all played by a jazz trio of piano, bass, and viola. (Because who doesn't think of viola when they think of Joni Mitchell?)
