Music Spoken Here Presents Hejira – Celebrating Joni Mitchell

Hejira is a 7-piece band set up to celebrate and honour the masterpiece works of Joni Mitchell, mostly from the late ‘70s.

Following the release of ‘The Hissing of Summer Lawns’, ‘Hejira’, ‘Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter’ and ‘Mingus’, Joni then toured briefly with a band featuring top jazz musicians of the time (Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Michael Brecker, Jaco Pastorius and Don Alias). The tour was recorded, producing the outstanding live album, ‘Shadows And Light’, from which the band Hejira draws the body of its repertoire.

Comprising highly experienced jazz musicians, this band is fronted by the brilliant HATTIE WHITEHEAD who not only has – in her own way – assimilated the poise, power and beauty of Joni’s vocals, but also plays guitar with Joni’s stylistic mannerisms. Expect an evening of the ‘great’ songs from Mitchell’s back catalogue, such as ‘Amelia’, ‘Woodstock’, ‘A Case Of You’, ’Song For Sharon’ and ‘Edith And The Kingpin’.

Hattie is joined by OLLIE WESTON (tenor & soprano saxophones), CHRIS ELDRED (keyboards), PETE OXLEY (guitar), DAVE JONES (bass), RICK FINLAY (drums) and ADAM OSMIANSKI (percussion)
