THE ASYLUM ALBUMS (1976-1980) delves into Joni Mitchell’s jazz-inflected sound on the late 1970’s studio albums – Hejira (1976), Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter (1977) and Mingus (1979) – and the live album Shadows and Light (1980). Famed bassist & composer—and long-time Mitchell collaborator—Jaco Pastorius appears prominently on each of the four albums in this set, alongside other noted jazz luminaries like Charles Mingus and Herbie Hancock. 

THE ASYLUM ALBUMS (1976-1980) is newly remastered and presented with premium packaging featuring abstract cover artwork from Mitchell’s private fine arts collection.
