Jaco with Joni & Coyote

From Hejira (1976).

I’ve usually been a Joni Mitchell admirer, but not exactly a fan. Since I started tracking Jaco’s steps, though, I discovered the work he did with Joni. Or rather, I found out that it had been Jaco in some of those haunting, vaguely familiar songs that I liked more than the others. So now I’m listening with different ears.

Joni goes way up in my estimation just for having the imagination to ask Jaco to play with her. The critical opinion is that Joni brought out a lyrical side of Jaco that nobody else did. I think that’s about right.
