The complete original album KIND OF BLUE, one
of the few authentic milestones of jazz history.
As a bonus, we have included three tunes from
a previous session featuring the exact same
personnel, which were first issued as the B Side
of the JAZZ TRACK LP. This edition also contains a quintet version of “So What” recorded for a TV show exactly one month after the studio version.
Includes 16-page booklet.
*****DOWN BEAT original review: KIND OF BLUE
“This is a remarkable album. Using very simple but effective devices, Miles has constructed an album of extreme beauty and sensitivity. This is the soul of Miles Davis, and it’s a beautiful soul.”
(Don De Michael)
