But it was her next move from her sweet haunting folksy decades to more modern rock jazz material. I have not been a solid Pat Metheny fan but when he is backing an artist as great as Joni he stays within his groove and enhances the mood, along with his friends Mays and Jaco.
Every level she moves up to another topic of her life's experiences depicted in her music. It's her life's diary but with music and sophisticated mind challenging lyrics. That is what I like about Joni Mitchell's music since the beginning.
I agree that the fill in artistic moments was unnecessary, but I guess Mitchell didn't seem to care as she does her own thing eccentrically.
Good performance from an era that we will never see again. Glad it is frozen in time on this DVD, It's worth watching artist that know how to play.
So why haven't most people heard of it? The problem was, Pioneer (via Warner Bros.) had held the copyright for many years; the recording was available only on Laserdisc, and players for this once state-of-the-art format, superseded by DVD (and, now, Blu-Ray), were always expensive, and are getting scarce nowadays. The same is true of the discs themselves. SHOUT! Factory has done the world a great service by obtaining the rights to this classic (as they did with the TAMI Show) and re-releasing it on DVD.
One minor gotcha is that the recording (like that of the TAMI show) is presented pretty much "as is". This is 1979 technology: think 4:3, top-end NTSC equipment, digital audio in its infancy. Both the original PCM stereo soundtrack and a later 5.1 remix are included.
That said, I was expecting a lot more non-concert video so I was pleasantly surprised that for the majority of the time, the concert was shown. Also - I do have to say I liked the footage of Amelia Earhart. I liked it because it showed a time when our country honored real, true heroes with ticker tape parades and gave them the respect they deserved - it brought people together. These days so much of what we honor is, well.. not really honorable. Okay, that's my soapbox portion and I'm done with it so slam those unhelpful votes on me for it, haha.
The product itself is wonderful. The price is right and I really enjoyed the concert. Joni Mitchell is in good form, and her voice is lovely (I don't know if they did any studio dubs on it but she sounds really good). Yes, she does look a bit lazy strumming the guitar as someone pointed out, but she is a musician first and a showman/performer second, unlike so many people today who are all show with no substance. She is all substance. The musicians backing her up are all first rate and I wish I could have seen more of them. At least she allowed them to shine during the concert.
Watching and listening to this event made me feel like I was there on that evening in Santa Barbara with them (well, except for when the videos cut in but the music put me in the right mood). If you like this phase in Joni's career, then by all means buy this DVD - it is well worth it.
Mitchell assembled a super charged group of some of the finest musicians on the planet. The tunes are those from one of her best periods, focusing on material from the masterful Hejira , the classic Court and Spark, the complex and brooding "Hissing of Summer Lawns" and the jazz infused "Mingus' album.
I have owned this on VHS for some time and am thrilled that it finally came out on DVD. Sound is cleaner, as expected. The video image is as good as can be, considering the less than stellar look of the original . Unfortunately, the editing often takes the viewer away from the concert, which distracts rather than enhances the performance. I would have personally been happier if the video had just simply shown a well edited concert, rather than weave in the artsy stuff. (This was Mitchell's edting, her vision) But that's small quibble, considering the quality of the music.
Performances are consistently solid and inspired. Highlights include a soulful "Amelia", a powerful and playful "Coyote", A high energy "Free Man in Paris,"and a very interactive "Pork pie hat" Jaco Pastorious, who was already strugging with drug problems is in great form here. Even his solo spot is relatively coherent and has moments of beauty (and silliness).
The DVD sports a couple of minor extras: one is a music video style interpretation of the live performance of hejira. The images are OK; there is a very talented dancer who is quite expressive on ice skates, but this addition only underlines the essential problems of this disc, that of Mitchell's need to pull us away from the concert stage. The other extra is a digital photo album from the tour that has some cool photos of the band on the road. There are some nice candid photos of Herbie Hancock and Joni jamming in her dressing room.
There is one awkward and fascinating moment towards the end of "Cleaner from Des moines".Michael Brecker is soloing on the out chorus and Jaco is just going nuts, overplaying and upstaging Brecker. The tunes ends with Brecker shaking his head, looking irritated. A look of sheepish embarrassment passes over Jaco's face for an instant.
But its also the only moment where the band isn't in perfect harmony. Lyle Mays is understated here, but supportive and tasteful. Its a treat to see him do his Jerry Lee lewis thing when he rocks out on "Raised on Roberry". Metheny rocks hard when appropriate and is as delicate as a sea shell when he needs to be. It is obvious that the band is having fun here. Watching this video, there is much to smile about. It is a great moment of popular music history, captured well enough to bear many enjoyable viewings for many years to come.
