Joni Mitchell – Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter (1977/2013)
Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter is a 1977 double album by the folk/pop/rock musician Joni Mitchell. It is unusual for its experimental style, expanding even further on the jazz fusion sound of Mitchell’s Hejira from the year before. Mitchell has stated that, close to completing her contract with Asylum Records, she allowed this album to be looser than anything she’d done previously.
Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter is notable for being a pop record that attracted contributions from prominent jazz musicians, including two members of Weather Report- Jaco Pastorius, and Wayne Shorter, who would later become frequent collaborators of Mitchell’s.
