Originally released in 1975, The Hissing Of Summer Lawns is a stunning work of art conceived as a graphic, musical, and lyrical whole.
Leaning even more towards the jazz idiom than Joni Mitchell's previous release, Court and Spark, the collection features the introduction of the great Burundi on drums and is highlighted by the excellent guitar playing of frequent session collaborators Larry Carlton and Robben Ford.
As adventurous and lyrically deep as anything Joni Mitchell has ever done, the 1974 album remains a classic.
