Kind of Blue [cd]

Kind of Blue
by Miles Davis [Compact Disc 781.65 Dav]

Arguably, the greatest jazz album of all time. In 2008, it reached quadruple platinum status. It is said that Miles Davis came up with the jazz settings only a few hours before the recording session - so the players would truly be improvising. Contains the pieces: "So What," "Freddie Freeloader," "Blue in Green," "All Blues," and "Flamenco Sketches." Featuring: Miles Davis on trumpet, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley on alto saxophone, Paul Chambers on double bass, Jimmy Cobb on drums, John Coltrane on tenor saxophone, Bill Evans on piano, and Wynton Kelly on piano [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Classical Brubeck - Compact Disc 781.68 Bru, Miles Davis (book) - Music 781.65 DavYm, Miles Davis: Ken Burns jazz - Compact disc 781.65 Dav.] -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
