Jazz meets Rock and Joni comes of age,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mingus (Audio CD)
This was an interesting departure for Joni Mitchell. She had long since moved away from her folky roots towards blues and jazz rock but it was incredibly brave to take the music of Charles Mingus and add her own lyrics and interpretation.
The result is, however, superb with the opportunity for her to take her voice to its limits in great swooping sounds, peaks and troughs of extreme vocals. As always she has chosen some of the best musicians to accompany her.
This is the Joni Mitchell album for Jazz lovers and the Jazz album for Joni Mitchell fans.

So why just 4*??? Joni deserves the full 5.
