After those original five tunes are presented, Disc One moves on to the alternate take of “Flamenco Sketches,” the only complete alternate take from the original recording sessions (a track first unveiled on the 5-LP/4-CD box set of 1988, Miles Davis: The Columbia Years 1955-1985, the first Miles Davis box set ever issued by Columbia). It is regarded by many critics as the greatest jazz record, Davis's masterpiece, and considered to be one of the best albums of all time. Kind of Blue: Legacy Edition is a double-CD package containing a standard CD booklet with a reworked 2,500-word version of Francis Davis’ essay from Kind of Blue Deluxe 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, and an embedded . It opens with the effortlessly cool track ‘So What’ and had a big influence across pop and rock artists through the 1960s and 1970s.

History was on the side of Kind of Blue; it was born in 1959, at the peak of the golden age of high-fidelity, featuring innovations in studio equipment (magnetic tape, high-quality condenser microphones), matched by advancements in home audio reproduction (long-player records — LPs; high-end turntables, and other stereo components). TLDR: Yes, the more you spend the better it sounds but fuck it do whatever sounds good to you and isn't lost on your system.

Winner of the 2018 Blues Music Awards Acoustic Album of the Year Nominated for the 2018 Blues Blast Music Awards Acoustic Blues Album of the Year Hi-Fi News Top Audiophile Vinyl Album of 2019! One of the greatest albums of all time, back in on blue vinyl'Kind of Blue' is the now classic studio album by the legendary American jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, recorded in 1959 at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City. The 200-gram records will feature the same flat profile that helped to make the original UHQR so desirable.In Vinyl1954´s comment I got a little confused when reading ; "t is best to use Columbia EQ curve on the photo stage" . I bought this for my daughter, who knows little about jazz, but I thought it would be a good introduction for her. There's also the matter of its status as the most-referenced, and arguably, most important, jazz recording of all-time. And if a certain horn riff on recent hits by Amy Winehouse and Christina Aguilera strikes you as familiar, that’s because their producer Mark Ronson borrowed it from James Brown’s 1967 hit “Cold Sweat” – a riff that the tune’s composer, Pee Wee Ellis, freely admits to lifting from “So What.

Its influence went way beyond the world of jazz with many rock and hip-hop musicians inspired by its modal compositions and deep textures.

My review is for the Legacy edition only and only with concern for the quality of the recording as the content is legend. Davis led a sextet which included pianist Bill Evans, and saxophonists John Coltrane and ‘Cannonball’ Adderley.

It may be a stretch to say that if you don't like Kind of Blue, you don't like jazz -- but it's hard to imagine it as anything other than a cornerstone of any jazz collection. Now Miles’ trumpet is coming through the left channel and the percussion is coming through the right. In late 1958, after some eight months, Bill Evans – the only white member of Miles’ group – left the lineup and was replaced by Wynton Kelly. It’s one of those that just hangs in your head when you’re trying to sleep after a night of drinking and is still hanging when you have a hangover.In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases. The back cover lists "Flamenco Sketches" as the fourth track and "All Blues" as the last track, which is incorrect. An audiophile favorite from the day it was issued, Kind of Blue takes on nirvanic sonic proportions via Mobile Fidelity's reissue.
