Mingus is the tenth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, and a collaboration with composer and jazz musician Charles Mingus. Recorded in the months before his death, it would be Mingus's final musical project; the album is wholly dedicated to him. Mingus was released on June 13, 1979. The album is quite experimental, featuring minimalist jazz, over-plucked, buzzing acoustic guitars, and even wolves howling through "The Wolf That Lives in Lindsey".

Joni Mitchell - Guitar & Vocals Jaco Pastorius - Bass; Horn Arrangement on The Dry Cleaner From Des Moines Wayne Shorter - Soprano Sax Herbie Hancock - Electric Piano Peter Erskine - Drums Don Alias - Congas Emil Richards - Percussion Wolves. Wayne Shorter appears courtesy of ARC Records Herbie Hancock appears courtesy of Columbia Records . Joni said that this was meant as a collaboration, not an adaptation or a cover-album, and you can almost hear her and Mingus dancing with each other throughout the songs. Plus, the two she wrote along are some of her best work- Lindsey is absolutely spine-tingling.

In the months prior to the passing of legendary jazz bassist Charles Mingus, Joni Mitchell had been personally summoned by the bop pioneer to collaborate on a musical version of . Eliot's Four Quartets. The project would entail Mitchell to condense the text for Mingus to score instrumentally. He planned on utilizing a full orchestra, as well as the more traditional guitar and bass. They would accompany Mitchell's vocals and the narration of selected portions of the text
