Quotes About Kind of Blue
 

It’s not hyperbole to suggest that Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue is regarded as one of the most important jazz records of all time 

Kind of Blue’ is considered the beginning of the ‘modal jazz’ movement where conventional ‘hard-bop’ and its complex chord progressions were replaced with simple, scale-based structure 
“Of course, it doesn’t hurt when you’re joined by some of the greatest musicians of all time:
  • saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian “Cannonball” Adderley (legends in their own right)
  • pianist Bill Evans (these represent his final recording sessions with Miles Davis)
  • rhythm section Paul Chambers (bass) and Jimmy Cobb (drums)….”
“Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue is the highest ranking jazz album (#12) in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time…..
“the best selling jazz album of all time….”
” Kind of Blue was an historical musical milestone”
Kind of Blue is touted as the greatest work of jazz, hands down”
 
Kind of Blue is as historic as it is sensational and timeless”
“Jazzy, amazingly well played, and a relaxing mood probably no album can beat; 
 
Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue is nearly perfect…”
Kind of Blue is Miles’ magnum opus. His greatest production and standing against the best jazz albums ever recorded. Every member of this particular ensemble could be counted in the top 5 of their instrument category. 
Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue (1959) was such a ground-breaking recording that books have been written about it.
