Joni Mitchell Recording Vocals In L.A.

Veteran singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell began recording vocal

tracks in Los Angeles last week for her next album, tentatively titled

Both Sides Now. Expected in early 2000, the LP includes Mitchell's

favorite standards as well as re-recorded versions of her own songs,

including "Both Sides Now" and "A Case of You." Mitchell has been invited

to debut the album with a full orchestra at La Scala, the birthplace of

opera, in Milan, Italy. Meanwhile, The Joni Mitchell Tribute Album,

featuring Chaka Khan, Elvis Costello, Björk

and Janet Jackson performing their favorite Joni Mitchell songs,

will hit stores late this year.
