iTunes Review

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!

My First Jazz Album

I recently purchased Davis' "Kind of Blue" and am glad it's my first foray into jazz.

It's stately beauty and unrivaled skill creeps up on you and fills the heart with soulful sounds, made possible by the unique and peerless instrumentalists, including the great sax god John Coltrain. In it, I hear all the jazz that came after, encapsulated in this once in a lifetime jam session.

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz from the mid-'40s to the early '90s, since he was in the thick of almost every important innovation and stylistic development in the...
