I chose to review Kind of Blue this week based solely on how many times I hear it called "overrated". Most of these comments come from white people that don't even like Jazz, yet hold this album on the pedestal to pretend they understand it and use as a social badge to brag to their friends: "Hey man, I got that one Jazz album everyone goes nuts about...". If you're offended by this, you prove me ... read more

Kind of blue is basically a jazz album for people that don't know much about jazz. It's a good jazz album, but it's certainly not the best.

If you're offended by this, you prove me right - now fuck off.

If you're going to call this album "the Jazz album for people that don't like Jazz" that's not very accurate. Jazz Fusion is for people that don't like Jazz (AKA white people). Everyone that actually can comprehend Jazz loves Kind of Blue, and the only people that ever bitch and moan about the album tend to be dumbass white people that want to remind you "it's not ” read more

""This painterly masterpiece is one of the most important, influential and popular albums in jazz. At the time it was made, Kind of Blue was also a revolution all its own. Turning his back on standard chord progressions, trumpeter Miles Davis used modal scales as a starting point for composition and improvisation — breaking new ground with warmth, subtlety and understatement in the thick of hard bop. Davis and his peerless band — bassist Paul Chambers, drummer Jimmy Cobb, pianist Bill Evans a"

"“In 1959, Miles Davis had already remade jazz in his own image several times over. The Birth of Cool introduced a smooth, sophisticated approach, and then Walkin' heated things up again. His classic '50s quintet raised the bar for small-group improvisation. But when he assembled an unprecedented all-star team (featuring John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley on tenor and alto saxophones, and the masterful pianist Bill Evans) for the two-day sessions that became the Kind of Blue album, Miles lef"
