Enlisted Times (San Francisco)
August 1979

by Joni Mitchell
Asylum Records (5E-505)

(JAZZ) An unlikely combination, jazz composer Charles Mingus and folkstar Joni Mitchell? Maybe, but it works. Mitchell's lyrics to Mingus' classics are vivid and witty, and her singing is surprisingly versatile. Particularly good are the moving, affectionate remake of "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" and the hilarious "The Dry Cleaner From Des Moines." Herbie Hancock on piano, Wayne Shorter on sax and Jaco Pastorius on bass provide added texture and mood.
