We were 21, 22 and 24. We drove 5 hours from La Grande, where we all worked for the local radio station. Joni and the band were something a world apart. Nothing about the night disappointed. Our seats, in the rafters. We were unaware of anything described in the associated press article, we simply ate up every moment. Joni wore a flowered jumpsuit, kind of rose colored. She was shy, gave little chatter, but her songs were true, her voice was powerful. We were thrilled, we already had all the albums. The band, stunning. Jaco and Pat Methany, we couldn't even believe we were lucky enough to be present. Decades of fabulous concerts, Portland Blues Festivals and Jimmy Mak's later and still this night remains sharp in my memory. Warmest wishes for joy and love Joni.

This was a surprise a friend gave to me. I was tingling with magic listening to Joni's voice again.
