Music. A singer, composer and lyricist of exceptional talent and unmatched influence, Joni Mitchell has crafted an extraordinary body of work spanning more than 50 years and is widely regarded as one of the brightest musical lights of recent generations.
Since her debut album in 1968, Canadian musician Joni Mitchell has released 19 studio albums, most recently 2007's Shine.Her most successful period was the early-mid 1970s, which included 1971's Blue and 1974's Court and Spark, which both reached Platinum status in the US.
Mingus is the tenth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, and a collaboration with composer and jazz musician Charles Mingus.Recorded in the months before his death, it would be Mingus's final musical project; the album is wholly dedicated to him.
Unlike many of her peers, Joni Mitchell seems firmly opposed to raiding her own vaults. As folks like Bob Dylan and Neil Young allow more and more demos, live performances, and other rarities to be released formally, Mitchell’s unreleased material remains mostly out of reach.
