The hissing of summer lawns
I told you a short while back about seeing Robin Adler and her excellent band Mutts of the Planet down at the new Dizzy's. They just released the video edit of the superb concert I attended which I encourage you to give a listen to. The whole show is now on YouTube. The band played Joni Mitchell's seminal 1975 album Hissing of Summer Lawns in its entirety.
Mutts of the Planet are Robin, husband Dave Blackburn on rhythm guitar and occasional percussion, Barnaby Finch on keyboards, Jamie Kime on lead guitar, Duncan Moore on drums and Jim Reeves on bass. This is a band of ace musicians with incredible chops and stellar résumés.
If you get a chance and haven't seen them and enjoy the music of Joni Mitchell, do so. For more information on the Mutts, here is the link to Robin's website.
