READ

Pitchfork
Less commented on is her in “injun” costume on the back, palm raised, a bubble above her head reads “How!” (Her cringe-inducing arguments about it later on included statements about how she has a “black man’s soul”). The album is solidly jazz-fusion, indulgent in length with still plenty of Jaco-dominance. […]

The Christopher Currie
This album is certainly recommended to fans of progressive and jazz-fusion stylings, many of whom may not even be aware that this aspect of Joni Mitchell‘s career exists. The Hissing Of Summer Lawns and Hejira might be even better choices, but it would be hard to envision someone “going wrong” with this one. […]

The Chord
Then there’s the big moment, or to be more accurate, the big 16 minute moment. This is “Paprika Plains”. I’ve spent years puzzling about how to talk about “Paprika Plains”. It has obvious jazz influences, as much of her music does, but there’s so much more going on. – See more at: http://www.chord.co.uk/blog/album-review-joni-mitchell-don-juans-reckless-daughter/#sthash.TsA8sxvD.dpuf […]
