Joni Mitchell’s 8th studio album Hejira has the imagery of highways, small towns and snow, in large part because it was written on a cross country road trip from Maine to Los Angeles. Characterized by lyrically dense, sprawling songs, as well as the gorgeous overdubbed fretless bass playing of Jaco Pastorius, Hejira continued Mitchell’s journey beyond her pop records towards the freer, jazz inspired music she would follow up on later recordings.
