The Guardian
How Miles Davis‘s Kind of Blue shaped 50 years of music I didn’t hear Kind of Blue for another six years after its original release, but when I did it was obvious that this was a jazz record different from anything I’d heard before, including the wayward leanings of Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk. A significant indicator was that it appealed to people who weren’t even jazz fans. […]

Why the best-selling jazz album of all time is so great. Kind of Blue is a one-shot deal, so dreamily perfect you can hardly believe someone created it. Which is why it remains so deeply satisfying, on whatever level you experience it, as moody background music or as the center of your existence. Listen to it 100 times or soand you still marvel at its spontaneous inventions; now and then, you’ll even hear something new. […]

Rolling Stone
Ranked number 12 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. As the late critic Robert Palmer wrote, “Kind of Blue is, in a sense, all melody – and atmosphere.” The bass line in “So What” is now among the most familiar obbligatos in jazzand there is no finer evocation of the late-night wonder of jazz than the muted horns in “All Blues.” […]
