Joni Mitchell - Goodbye Pork Pie Hat /Album:Mingus 1979 A tribute album to the great Bass Player and composer Charles Mingus.

Mingus is the tenth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, and a collaboration with composer and jazz musician Charles Mingus. Recorded in the months before his death, it would be Mingus's final musical project; the album is wholly dedicated to him. Mingus was released on June 13, 1979. The album is quite experimental, featuring minimalist jazz, over-plucked, buzzing acoustic guitars, and even wolves howling through "The Wolf That Lives in Lindsey".

Wayne Shorter appears courtesy of ARC Records Herbie Hancock appears courtesy of Columbia Records . Joni said that this was meant as a collaboration, not an adaptation or a cover-album, and you can almost hear her and Mingus dancing with each other throughout the songs. Plus, the two she wrote along are some of her best work- Lindsey is absolutely spine-tingling.

In the months prior to the passing of legendary jazz bassist Charles Mingus, Joni Mitchell had been personally summoned by the bop pioneer to collaborate on a musical version of . Eliot's Four Quartets. The project would entail Mitchell to condense the text for Mingus to score instrumentally. He planned on utilizing a full orchestra, as well as the more traditional guitar and bass. They would accompany Mitchell's vocals and the narration of selected portions of the text

Charles Mingus had called upon Joni Mitchell in the last months of his life to work on a musical version of . Elliot’s Four Quartets, a project which ultimately was scrapped but served as the catalyst to Joni’s Mingus album. Initial recordings for this album were done with other musicians, but Joni settled upon an all-star cast of Jaco on bass, along with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Peter Erskine, Don Alias and others. Sadly, Mingus died before this album was completed.

When Joni Mitchell called Jaco to collaborate on the Charles Mingus project she had been working on and wrestling with, having recorded and re-recorded the same tunes with a number of different bands, Jaco insisted that I be the drummer. His insistence was good enough to get me on the album. According to Erskine, it was also Pastorius' idea to reach out to Herbie Hancock, an invitation that would plant the seeds of a great friendship between the keyboard icon and Mitchell, which culminated in Hancock paying homage to her with his 2007 masterpiece, River: The Joni Letters.
