Seeing her perform just makes me smile. So talented, so enigmatic and so very very fine.

Right, mk. Check out another here..I love Joni's guitar work. Her guitar is so sublime...such beautiful tone and her open tuning is still a wonder that every other guitarist strives for...just using her magic fingers to strum and pick those stings....sweet.

I never noticed how excellent her guitar pickin is.

She seems to give new meaning to the word "Performance".

Excellent...here is the full BBC performance. Her best from that early period and such a fine copy saved by BBC for us all.

We were just discussing Joni's "Blue" album over on another site.I remarked that I was aware it IS considered one of the finest ever albums and that I was always under the impression that is was some sort of slow jazz thing.Am I correct in this assumption.If not,what can I expect to hear if I ever do snag a copy.Also,is there anyone who prefers either the vinyl or CD version over the other?

I wouldn't say she had reached her jazz period, but I would call this her transitional period (a jazzy folk sound but more folk/pop sound still): a middle period moving from Ladies of the Canyon folk, to BLUE & For The Roses (a distinctively breezy folk pop groove), then on to a pop rock sound of Court & Spark, then finally the full blown jazz/folk/rock of Hejira & Don Juan's Reckless Daughter and beyond.

If you do see Blue, anywhere, grab it. Hijera is one of my all time favorite LPs..period! Grab it too!

Hijera...an amazing track featuring Jaco Pastorius with his fine & distinctive jazz bass lines

Blue...have a listen. Full album.
