    Use to hear her live at the Greek theatre. Still listen to her on vinyl. I think Hijuera is my favorite. Lovely woman with a lovely voice and musically divine.

    Never had the pleasure of seeing her live unfortunately, except for on the You tube. True icon. Wanted to name my 2.5 year old daughter Joni but the wife wasn't a fan, name wise or artistically:eek2:.

    In the end we named her Melody so i got my musical connotation regardless! I win....I think?:rolleyes:

    Travelogue is one of my favorites. Lush orchestra and arranging by Vince Mendoza.

    Played parts of Hejira yesterday - great stuff, Jaco and Pat Matheny in the backing band -
    Saw her during the Miles of Aisles tour in '74, regret not seeing her again ...

    That's one of the great live albums. Summer of '74 is when I developed my love of her music. I worked in a coffee house and her music was played frequently. Quite the system there too: Thorens/McIntosh/AR. Plus free cheesecake!

    Oh yeah. Is Court & Spark her best seller? Might be the most well known anyway. I admit I'm a sucker for "Both Sides Now", as well.

    This is nice -

    Her 75th birthday was, if memory serves, Friday.
    Last I knew, she was not doing well at all, sadly.

    Court & Spark is on my all-time Top 25 list. Tom Scott and Joni were perfect together.

    Its hard to pick favorites, but I keep going back to The Hissing of Summer Lawns. And Hejira, and Don Juan's Reckless Daughter ever becken attention.
