Kind of Blue 60th Anniversary

September 4, 2019 • #

This year is the 60th anniversary of Miles Davis’s legendary Kind of Blue.

This video is a great explainer of the origins of Kind of Blue’s modal jazz style and the history behind how the group came together to make it happen.

I have no idea how many hundreds of times I’ve listened to this album over the years, but it’s still in the frequent rotation to put on whenever I can’t think of anything else. A default soundtrack for working or getting things done around the house.
