In this episode, Dwight from Eat The Rich joins me to talk about Joni Mitchell’s 1980 live album Shadows And Light. The album features Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Michael Brecker, Jaco Pastorius, Don Alias, and The Persuasions. We talk about some of the highlights of the record and play excerpts. Then we talk about the current economic state of the jazz world, and what the future might bring. You’ll also learn more about Dwight’s show, Eat The Rich. You can follow Dwight and Eat The Rich on Twitter, and support ETR on Patreon.
