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.

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"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”"

"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."
