This is the album that got me into Joni Mitchell. Back in 1978 or so I saw a piece on the WNBC evening news about her doing a project with Charlie Mingus who was dying of ALS. Didn''t know much about either one but my curiosity was piqued. I bought the vinyl record and was floored. Jaco Pastorius, whom I would meet seven years later......unbelievable. Just an amazing project from an amazing artist. I understand that Joni''s "fans" don''t rate Mingus that highly. Screw ''em. I love this record.

There is only so much time for listening to music in a given day. If you are like me, and have collected hundreds and hundreds of discs covering many different types of music, it can be a tough choice as to which one to put into the player.

This album is always in contention for playing time. I find that I tend it leave it in the player longer, and play it more often.

If you are strictly looking for a Mingus album, this obviously isn''t for you. If you are looking for a mainstream Joni Mitchell album, this likely isn''t your cup of tea. But if you want to hear Joni be creative in new and exciting ways, this is a winner. Her take on Mingus, both his work and his personality, are exciting and refreshing.

And if the Mingus/Mitchell combination isn''t enough to make up your mind, the minimalist jazz arrangements feature the amazing work of Jaco Pastorius, Wayne Shorter, and Herbie Hancock. Do yourself a favor and give this a listen.

My preconceptions of this album were that if you mixed Joni Mitchell with Charles Mingus...you''d end up with something different...and that''s what I got. A very refreshing "jazz" album. Joni Mitchell, in this context, IS a jazz singer, reminding me of late 40''s/early 50''s "beat" genre, which I found very appealing and refreshing. The music had an extemporaneous and free feel to it. If you like something "different", I think you will like this.

Joni Mitchell had been labeled a "jazzer" after using session players Wayne Shorter and Jaco Pastorious, jazz musicians in their own right. However, jazz inflections were all to be heard on previous Mitchell releases, and then all the ones going forward. Only " Mingus" stands as a true jazz album. Mitchell was well suited to the genre.

Charles Mingus sent for Joni Mitchell; she didn''t ask to be a part of his final recording. However, it''s incredible for us that she agreed. It may take a bit of a stretch for fans of early work to reach the point of appreciation, but it''s worth the effort. Much great jazz requires a little work on the part of the listener, but it''s certainly rewarding.

" The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines" pops! Joni scats here, drawing the color out of a bleak life. " God Must Be a Boogie Man" may need a little background knowledge of Charles Mingus, but once that is obtained, what a tribute! Personally, I like to think that God Himself is a boogie Man. The rythem of life suggests this is true.

The " raps" interspersed through the album are a bit distracting, but an understandable addition given the album''s concept. Joni never did pure jazz before or since, but broaden your horizons and embrace the brief departure!

You have to use words like that to describe this album... it really is weird, compared to mainstream music at least. Jaco Pastorius "sings" his fretless bass lines right back at Joni as she sings her vocal lines into the ethereal atmosphere... you can almost see the smoky underground cavern den where this kind of music would be gently nodded to by silent, astute, hip folks who are as far out there as Joni and Jaco....

If you know Joni and if you know Jaco... then you know exactly what you are going to get.... If you don''t know them, then you are in for a shock and a surprise. Give it a try; it''s hip, afterall.......

One of Joni Mitchell''s finest albums, a collaborative tribute to jazz composer/band leader and bassist, Charles Mingus. I remember when this album came out – Charles Fox played a track from it on “Jazz Today” - where I first heard it - and the jazz press was very favourable in their reviews. Coming from a jazz background myself – and being a Mitchell fan too, I''ve never had any problem appreciating this; it was an influential album for many musicians and is regarded now as an important recording within Mitchell''s period of experimentation with jazz influences – something that broke down many artificial barriers that existed between forms at the time. The band Mitchell put together for this project provide exemplary support and interaction; her connection with Mingus too, is important to note – he was not an easy artist to work with and would not have sanctioned a project he wasn''t happy with – that he gave Mitchell his blessing on this speaks volumes and his judgement was absolutely right. I''m actually quite surprised at the negativity of some reviews on this page; this is no misfire; Mitchell''s original pieces are eminently memorable, and her words – set to Mingus` compositions – are as good as anything she''s ever written - “Goodbye Pork-Pie Hat” is a particular favourite, if I have to choose. The only problems I have with it are that it ends too soon, and there are fewer of Mitchell''s paintings reproduced in the CD notes than were reproduced (in good size) on the original gate-fold LP. An album I consider an indispensable part of my music collection. Check out the sound samples above; the disc has a running time of just over 37 minutes.

I never owned this album at the time (1979) due to the slating it got from critics and Joni''s fans and I''m not a great fan of jazz per se. She wasted 10 years trying to make a pop album and get a hit after this, before finally getting back to relying on her natural creative instinct. Well, I finally got round to trying it and I like it plenty. Mingus could no longer play like he used to due to failing health but here and there are flashes of his genius. Joni compensates and clearly was still inspired by working with him. Her voice as superb as ever and she can really handle jazz technique. The only low points are Mingus'' pointless and indulgent spoken "raps" between the tracks, but fortunately these only last a few seconds each. I guess the idea was to lend a spontaneous feel, but all they do is interrupt the flow. A keeper and just right when you''re in the mood for it.

Joni pushing the envelope with affection for Mingus
