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. Mingus was released on June 13, 1979. The album is quite experimental, featuring minimalist jazz, over-plucked, buzzing acoustic guitars, and even wolves howling through "The Wolf That Lives in Lindsey".

If you bought "Joni Mitchell," aka "Song To A Seagull," when it came out, you're a member of a very exclusive club or you're lying. There were no famous covers, no big media campaign, the record barely made a noise. Yet, when you discovered it sometime thereafter, which you did if you were a big Joni Mitchell fan, you became enraptured, because of the sound.
Joni Mitchell and Jaco Pastorius 1976. Hejira was released in November 1976 and climbed up to no. 13 in the Billboard LP chart in January 1977, the week that saw a number of 70s iconic albums in the top three positions: Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life, The Eagles Hotel California and Boston’s debut album. The album’s cover features a photograph of Joni Mitchell by Norman Seeff who took many fantastic photos of her in the 70s. Billboard Top LPs January 1977. Billboard Top Album Picks December 1976. I’m reading Reckless Daughter now, and unlike some of our heroes, who become less heroic the more we know about them, this proves that she, above and beyond any other descriptions, absolutely REAL.
Clouds (Joni Mitchell album). Clouds is the second studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, released on May 1, 1969, by Reprise Records. After releasing her debut album to considerable exposure, Mitchell recorded the album at A&M Studios in Hollywood. She produced most of the album and painted a self-portrait for its cover artwork. Clouds has subtle, unconventional harmonies and songs about lovers, among other themes. After moving to New York City and signing to Reprise Records in 1967, Mitchell recorded her 1968 debut album Song to a Seagull with producer David Crosby. The album was a mostly acoustic set of songs, some of which were subsequently covered by more successful singers Production.
