Joni Mitchell – The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines

Mingus (album)

Finally taking some time to listen to some albums that I have missed for some reason over the years.

Live version with lineup as follows: Joni Mitchell, Jaco Pastorius, Don Alias, Michael Brecker.

Mingus is the tenth studio album by Joni Mitchell, and a collaboration with jazz musician Charles Mingus. Recorded in the months before his death, it would be Mingus’s final musical project; the album is wholly dedicated to him.

The album is quite experimental, featuring minimalist jazz, overplucked, buzzing acoustic guitars, and even wolves howling through “The Wolf That Lives In Lindsey”.
