The Absolute Sound 40th Anniversary Best Sounding Music!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 12/500!
If there is one jazz album everyone should own, it is this one, musically and sonically. Also here Cannonball Adderly, Paul Chambers, James Cobb, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, & Wynton Kelly.
"This painterly masterpiece is one of the most important, influential and popular albums in jazz. At the time it was made, Kind of Blue was also a revolution all its own. Turning his back on standard chord progressions, trumpeter Miles Davis used modal scales as a starting point for composition and improvisation — breaking new ground with warmth, subtlety and understatement in the thick of hard bop." - www.rollingstone.com
