At first glance, these two singer-songwriters don’t share much beyond a debt to Joni Mitchell: Collins, of course, broke through in 1968 with a cover of “Both Sides Now,” while Peyroux’s albums seem deeply informed by Mitchell’s late-’70s jazz period. Listen closer, though, and you hear in both women a sense of song as a things to be measured and molded. Kudos to whomever thought of pairing them for this one-off show.
