MILES DAVIS - Kind Of Blue
Notify me when back in stock
Well, if you're going to revamp your jazz catalog, you might as well start with the greatest jazz album of all time! Includes a rare alternate take of Flamenco Sketches , and the first three songs are in their correct pitch for the first time.
This is the one jazz record owned by people who don't listen to jazz, and with good reason. The band itself is extraordinary listing John Coltrane and Julian "Cannonball" Adderley on saxophones, Bill Evans on piano, and the crack rhythm unit of Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Coltrane's astringency on tenor is counterpoised to Adderley's funky self on alto, with Davis moderating between them as Bill Evans conjures up a still lake of sound on which they walk. Meanwhile, the rhythm partnership of Cobb and Chambers is prepared to click off time until eternity. It was the key recording of what became modal jazz, a music free of the fixed harmonies and forms of pop songs. In Davis's men's hands it was a weightless music, but one that refused to fade into the background. In retrospect every note seems perfect, and each piece moves inexorably towards its destiny
