Herbie Hancock’s recent homage to Joni Mitchell is fantastic. I think it just won a grammy. It’s all I’ve listened to for weeks. Listening to the album you wonder what would’ve happened if Mingus would’ve lived to complete his collaboration with Joni, or if Jaco Pasterious would’ve lived to do subsequent recordings with her. . . Anyway, if you’re a Joni fan, you’re gotta be so stoked for this album. If you’re not, what the hell is wrong with you? Buy or otherwise download “The Joni Letters” and get with it.
