Mina Keohane-Joni Mitchell’s “Mingus” Album Live
Join vocalist/composer Mina Keohane and friends in celebrating Charles Mingus’ birth month as they perform the music from Joni Mitchell’s “Mingus” album + additional incredible Mingus compositions. Mingus’ collaboration with Joni Mitchell was his final musical project before his death. Joni Mitchell says in the album liner notes: “The first time I saw his face it shone up at me with a joyous mischief. I liked him immediately. I had come to New York to hear six new songs he had written for me. I was honored! I was curious! It was as if I had been standing by a river – one toe in the water – feeling it out – and Charlie came by and pushed me in – Sink or Swim..”
The experimental album was wholly dedicated to his honor and memory.
