"More than kind of and more than great. The quintessential blue jazz album. "
"Taking jazz way beyond cool Davis was already a major star by the late ’50s, and this album reinforced his rep as a trendsetter and innovator. His approach to blues and improvisation here was revolutionary, but it was the tuneful grace of his sextet — a group including legends-in-the-making John Coltrane, Bill Evans and Cannonball Adderley — that made this a classic. Standout tracks: “So What,” “All Blues”"
"If there really is a “greatest jazz record,” it might as well be this. Rejecting the modern jazz clichés of the 1950s, Kind of Blue takes something of a punchy, haiku approach, using the simplest ingredients to produce music of guileless honesty and Zen beauty. Standout track: “So What”"
"KIND OF BLUE (1959) MILES DAVIS Review coming soon... FAV TRACKS: "Flamenco Sketches"; "Freddie Freeloader"; "So What"; "All Blues"; "Blue in Green" "
"1959 Favourite song: "So What" Favourite moment: I took a long vacation from this record only to recently re-discover how the beginning of "So What" is one of the most magical moments in 20th century music."
