River The Joni Letters Herbie Hancock
Giants of jazz once again embrace the music of Joni Mitchell, this time under the cool couture styling of Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. Maybe the best Joni cover album so far, "River: The Joni Letters" is Grammy material featuring talent that is so high end that the atmosphere created on "River" could transform a cardboard box into a full-on luxury penthouse. Norah Jones, Tina Turner, Corinne Bailey Rae, Luciana Souza, Sonya Kitchel, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell herself add vocal dimension to the sensual selections hand picked from joni's warm flowing body of work, the collaboration is so successful that I'm still in awe even after repeated listening, but as with all good things I do want more and hope that other giants will take on Joni and her songbook with the same verve, vision and grace. Noteworthy tracks: Court and Spark featuring Norah Jones Edith and the Kingpin featuring Tina Turner Both Sides Now River featuring Corinne Bailey Rae Sweet Bird Tea Leaf Prophecy featuring Joni Mitchell Solitude Amelia featuring Luciana Souza Nefertiti The Jungle Line featuring Leonard Cohen All I Want featuring Sonya Kitchell
one of the giants from modern jazz. just perfect :)
