5.0 out of 5 stars Jazzy Joni, 18 Jun. 2013
By 
This review is from: The Hissing Of Summer Lawns (Audio CD)
By this stage Joni had completely abandoned her folk roots and decided that the jazz world was more to her liking. Her previous album, Court and Spark already included some jazz influenced songs which had alienated some of her folk fans. But she takes it even further here. Her voice is deeper, singing in contralto throughout. The whole album is excellent if somewhat morose at times, but there are 2 standout tracks for me. Edith And The Kingpin is a beautiful sultry and jazzy masterpiece of a song, undoubtedly one of her best. Another classic and unusual track is the closer Shadows And Light. Joni's voice is multitracked in choral harmony accompanying herself with sinister organ chords. It is slightly reminiscent of a Gregorian chant. Those who love Joni's famous 'Blue' album might find this one a lot harder to take, but as different as they are in style both are timeless musical gems.
