Picture of KIND OF BLUE: 50TH ANNIVERSARY LEGACY EDITION Miles Davis - So What Source

Released originally in 1959, Kind of Blue is widely regarded as one of the greatest albums ever recorded. With an all-star line up of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb, Kind of Blue is an album that defies classification, appeals to people across generations, and is one of the first (if not the first) album that any new jazz acolyte purchases.


The 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 illustartes how this unparallelled ensemble evolved, plus never-before-heard session talk; and accompanying liner notes rich with detail, written specifically for the golden anniversary.
