Today, I told you I'd give you something unexpected, and who of you would have thought that I'd ever post a track by Joni Mitchell? Granted, it was composed by Charles Mingus and comes from Joni's Mingus album, but Joni brings her pipes (when they were still amazing) and some crazy production work to the track-- the Jaco Pastorius horn arrangement is reverbed out of its mind, and there's even some WILD vocal panning towards the end of the track, the likes of which had never been heard in a Joni track at the time. Pastorius' funky-ass bass work on the track is also fantastic. A real jazzy gem, and something completely unlikely! Enjoy.
