Two top musicians combine, 30 Dec 2009
In my opinion one of the best Joni Mitchell albums.
This is not surprising.
Joni Mitshell is a very competent singer with a personal and intriguing voice. Also she is, in my opinion, best when singing jazz or "semi jazz".
And Mingus is one of the top composers and musicians in jazz. The combination of the two - although Mingus is only present through his compositions and some recorded smalltalk - is great! Joni Mitchell captures the characteristic "off the road" Mingus style and adds her own wonderful interpretation.
