Well I looked at the granite markers
Those tribute to finality to eternity
And then I looked at myself here
Chicken scratching for my immortality

Really love shadows and light because the music store I used to work was full of brecker bros loving old dudes and they'd put on the DVD all the time. Have never heard any studio recordings though. Where do I go from here?

Hejira is what hooked me personally but Court and Spark and Blue are probably the more typical entry points.

She basically slays across the board, though.

also thought this bump was her death. listened to for the roses twice this morning, so good timing.

i feel like hissing of summer lawns is a good place to start, its what got me into her. oddly enough blue is lower in my rankings, guess i like my joni a lil jazzy.

Shadows and Light was the record I listened to the most over the summer. It's superb.

The things Jaco does to Edith and Kingpin, makes me melt.

I think I'm finally getting into Joni because one day out of nowhere her ornate and weird jazz choices finally made perfect sense to me.
