Originally released in 1959, Miles Davis' magnum opus Kind of Blue is still considered by any to be one of the greatest albums of all time. The pinnacle of modal jazz, Davis and company set an unshakably cool mood, their performances shining with inspiration. Despite the improvised nature of the recordings, every note falls perfectly into place as if it were all meticulously planned. Starring Davis, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb, Kind of Blue has held onto it's status as an album that crosses genres, speaks to generations, and is one of the first (if not the first) album that any new jazz acolyte purchases.
Kind of Blue 50th Anniversary Legacy Edition offers the complete studio sessions on 2 CDs, including false starts, alternate takes and a 17-minute 1960 live version of "So What." the Legacy Edition exposes a new generation to Miles Davis and places this historic event in context offering over 2 hours of audio that illustrates how this unparalleled ensemble evolved; plus never-before- heard session talk; and accompanying liner notes rich with detail, written specifically for the golden anniversary.
