Music today has been Joni Mitchell’s jazzy, lyrical Hejira (1976) with the legend that is Jaco Pastorius on fretless bass. I guess that sound isn’t for everybody. She was heading into a much jazzier direction into the future as she evolved out of the hippie sixties into the seventies sophisticated singer-songwriter and then had to go somewhere else. It all went a bit wrong in the eighties as she fell victim to eighties production but later found herself again. Her painting continued to be impressive but later an aneurysm, continued smoking, and the controversial Morgellons disease has seen her do little in recent years but it’s not like she hasn’t left an inspired legacy.
