Format: Audio CD
This concert album represents the culmination of Mitch's "art" period. Although we get a song or two from such transitional works as "Court and Spark" and "The Hissing of Summer Lawns", most of the material is drawn from "Hejira" and the then-current "Mingus" album. By eschewing the older part of her catalogue, she avoids duplicating songs that were released on her previous live effort, "Miles of Aisles". Fans from the early days should be forewarned that by this time Mitchell was seriously flirting with jazz, so there's little old-fashioned rock'n'roll on this release, but never fear - this isn't the sort of music you put on while you're watching a ball game, or talking on the phone. This is a mature work by a brilliant songwriter, backed by what some have dubbed the greatest band ever assembled.
The selections vary between Joni's impassioned, quietly intense, deeply personal folk-based material ("Amelia", "Furry Sings the Blues", "Edith and the Kingpin"), and the rollicking exuberance of the band's full-tilt jazz explorations of "In France They Kiss On Main Street" and "The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines". On lead guitar we have virtuoso Pat Metheny (whose talents are somewhat underutilized on this set, sad to say), with his longtime compadre Lyle Mays playing keys, but Jaco Pastorius' bass-playing is super-phenomenal throughout; you really get a strong feel of how he's revolutionized the instrument, and Michael Brecker gives what must have been the performance of his career, especially on "The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines" and the impassioned cover of "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat".
This is not your father's (or your mother's) Joni Mitchell album.

I will always reflect back on "Shadows & Light" with tremendous fondness for two important reasons: it introduced me for the first time to Joni Mitchell's late 70s jazz-oriented body of work and also prepared me for the true greatness which was soon forthcoming from the team of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays (who play guitars and keyboards respectively on the concert album.)
"Shadows & Light" is a collage of Mitchell's various musical expressions throughout the years: rock, folk and pop ballads blended with her own unique and often quite eccentric style of jazz. The album kicks off brightly with "In France They Kiss on Main Street" with Mitchell packing in the words to this rapidly traveling and lyrically nostalgic pop tune. The crowd is enthusiastic from this very first song, which adds to the excitement and electricity of a very memorable evening at L.A.'s Hollywood Bowl.
From there it is a fascinating journey through the most recent Joni Mitchell works preceding this release...from "The Hissing of Summer Lawns" she performs the mysterious "Edith and the Kingpin" and the beautifully acappella title song with background vocals courtesy of The Persuasions. Mitchell's selections from her then recent collaboration with the late Charles Mingus are the focus of her most hard-core jazz performances including "Goodbye Porkpie Hat", "The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines" and the finger-popping "God Must Be a Boogie Man" which feature the late Jaco Pastorius on bass and Michael Brecker on saxophone.
Most lyrical and haunting though are her beautiful and often ethereal selections from her album "Hejira" including the rolling and humor-laden "Coyote", the melancholy "Furry Sings the Blues" and most notably the absolutely monumental "Amelia"...
