Joni Mitchell & Herbie Hancock — Bread & Roses (7 Aug. 2015/March 11, 2016)

USA Flag Joni Mitchell & Herbie Hancock — Bread & Roses  Joni Mitchell & Herbie Hancock — Bread & Roses (March 11, 2016)♣   BAM, September 15, 1978
♣   The second annual Bread and Roses Festival of Music, held at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley over Labor Day weekend, proved to be one of the most exciting musical events of the year. The three–day concert series was sponsored by singer Mimi Farina’s Bread and Roses organization, which brings free live entertainment into Marin County hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation clinics.
♣   Perhaps the highlight of the festival was the appearance Saturday night of Joni Mitchell and Herbie Hancock. Joni had not performed in public since the Band’s, Last Waltz in November of ‘76, and this marked the first time she had teamed up with Hancock. She opened her set with solo versions of two songs from her “Hejira” LP, “Coyote” and “Furry Sings The Blues.” After a new song, she put down her guitar and sang an acapella bebop tune about a dry cleaner from Des Moines who gets lucky in Las Vegas.
♣   Next Herbie joined her onstage and together they performed two songs from Joni’s upcoming album featuring her words and jazz great Charlie Mingus’ music. The tunes were challenging to say the least, “Chair In The Sky” painted a stunning visual portrait of the aging, ailing Mingus alone in New York and featured moments of dissonance and moments that swung. Herbie’s keyboard figures were complex and ornate and Joni's arching vocals seemed to span several octaves, “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat” followed, again with lyrics about Mingus, this time centering about his relationship with the late Lester Young, for whom Mingus originally wrote the song.
♣   Their second encore on Sunday night (Joni and Herbie played Sunday to help boost poor sales for that day — it didn’t work) was a lovely version of “The Circle Game” with the Persuasions, Tim Hardin, Tom Paxton and Odetta (all of whom had played that afternoon) helping out on vocals. It was magical, indeed.Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States / Fort Macleod, Alberta, Canada

Product Description:
√   In the late 70s Mimi Fariña, the folk singer and younger sister of Joan Baez, established the annual Bread & Roses Festival of Music as a fundraiser for her co~operative social organisation of the same name. The event featured the music world s leading activists and politically engaged artists: Stephen Stills, Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton and Bonnie Raitt among them. The second Bread & Roses Festival took place over the Labor Day weekend in September 1978 at the Greek Theatre in Berkley and marked the stunning comeback of one of the greatest singer~songwriters of all time: Joni Mitchell. Joni Mitchell had not performed live since her appearance at The Band s Last Waltz nearly two years earlier and had been undergoing a stylistic transformation, turning away from the acoustic folk of her early career to explore Jazz influenced work. √   Mitchell s appearance at Bread & Roses was the highlight of the festival, broadcast live by the radio station WBUR, she was joined on~stage by the jazz legend and pioneering fusion artist Herbie Hancock. The set correspondingly featured a full exposition of her new direction ~ material from Hejira as well as the first incarnations of songs from Mingus , the concept collaboration with Charles Mingus that would not surface until almost a year later. Bread & Roses is a rare and fascinating record of Joni Mitchell during one of her most artistically fertile, daring periods.; coming in advance of Mingus , there s also a loose, exploratory feel to the performance, as Mitchell tests her new work in public for the first time. This concert is quite simply essential listening both for Joni Mitchell fans and anyone wishing to acquaint themselves with one of the most iconic, innovative voices in music.
