5 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

From the opening bass vamp of “So What” to the muted trumpet lines on “Blue in Green,” from the slow groove of “All Blues” to the sentimental “Flamenco Sketches,” Kind of Blue is ingrained in every jazz musician’s DNA. And for good reason: These simple, haiku-like song sketches cover the range of human emotion. Davis' cool trumpet work is complemented by the fiery saxophones of John Coltrane and Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, while the rhythm section swings like mad.

Quintessential Jazz

I'll keep this short and sweet, because iTunes seems to be deleting all of the reviews/ratings from classic albums.

One of the greatest pieces of music ever made. It doesn't matter if you're a jazz fanatic or have never listened to it in your life, buy this album. Nuff said.

Kind Of Blue

I think this music vibrates in harmony with the fundamental frequency of life!

Must have

This is a must have for any music enthusiast (not just jazz fanatics). Miles and company stretched the boundaries and created a masterpiece. If Jesus had a cd collection, this would be in it.
