This was a wonderful concert... the way that the persuasions harmonized with Joni's vocals was truly magic.. Pat M... was great, Jaco showing a side not seen during his Weather Report days. I'm not sure Shadow and Light could do this concerts justice.. perhaps it was the moment, but the Concert seemed much better. I recently found an audience tape of the concert on line and it is great to just sit back close my eyes and remember. The times we had back then... We had our problems... but they seem small now... compared to those we have today..

This is the one I missed. A good friend who'd never seen Joni got to go, and she was a huge Pat Metheny fan, so it was a trip for her... and also the Persuasions were there, so I was really sad I couldn't be there but happy for my friend!

I had just graduated from high school and was dubious about the just-released "Mingus." After the run from Blue through Don Juan's Reckless Daughter, I felt she was incapable of a misstep. My friends weren't that into it, and I only had three join me at Tanglewood, a majestic setting for a majestic artist. From the opneing (video incorporated into the performance! Revolutionary!) through the "Woodstock" encore, we were rapt. The green blouse she was wearing alone was transfixing. The way she melded with the musicians (Don Alias! Pat Metheney! And especially Jaco!) was awe inspiring. Her cool demeanor
worked beautifully with the song selections. When she got to the "Amelia"-"Hejira portion," I wondered if anyone could surpass her. I'm still waiting (although Annie Lennox does give a run for the money).
