The Hissing Of Summer Lawns

Chaka Khan
March 2012

Chaka opens by telling the audience "I guess it's no secret that Joni Mitchell is one of my all time favorite artists."

She then goes on to share, "she's a friend of mine," and explains "she told me ... this is a song that she wrote when she went to visit José Feliciano a hundred years ago when he got married. He and his wife invited her to their new home in the Valley in LA. This is what she saw. This is her interpretation of their marriage and house. It's called The Hissing Of Summer Lawns."
