A great live performance!
4 November 2007 | by (brooklyn) – See all my reviews

The music icon surrounded by as talented a group of performers you can find including Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius and The Persuasions. The sound and video quality complete the 'live' experience for those of us unfortunate for not having been there. Joni Mitchell's music is as evocative as ever with the blending of jazz and soul augmenting a special experience. This is a slice in musical time, well directed and produced with an enjoyable mix of of montage complimenting certain tracks. The selections will satisfy the palate of all Joni Mitchell fans as she spans the breath of her work to that point. Obviously, I enjoy this very much.
