About this deal

Before now, it was only addressed in 1995 for the Classic Records edition and by Columbia Records — or their latter-day parent, Sony Music — on a CD reissue in the late ’90s.

Kind of blue , due to its commercial success is sometimes given a wide berth by jazz purists who insist there is better stuff out there. Davis was the first artist to understand how to blend all music genres in a masterful and essential work that remains one of the 10 masterpieces of the 20th century.Though I have a huge collection of jazz greats, this album remains at the very top of the pile, with its status as the best ever jazz album still securely intact. Davis led a sextet which included pianist Bill Evans, and saxophonists John Coltrane and ‘Cannonball’ Adderley. I’d say the UHQR sounds better than both other options but this and the mono version are totally acceptable.

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. Although this session is not as structured as the three-horn efforts of the Jazztet, there is a balance between blowing and Golson's writing that makes for a felicitous blend, whether on Golson's own "My Blues House," Gene Krupa's old burner, "Drum/Boogie," or Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays. Each UHQR will be packaged in a deluxe box and will include a booklet detailing the entire process of making a UHQR along with a hand-signed certificate of inspection. Davis intentionally handpicked these musicians to comprise this particular cast, with everyone from former foil Evans to blues maestro Kelly to percussive genius Cobb interacting and reacting with peerless skill.

In away, the story of Ben Webster's saxophone career is the story of jazz music itself through decades of experience. Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. Starting with the two 33rpm copies of Kind of Blue since all Regas are a pain in the ass to switch speeds back and forth on.

In 1969, he recorded Bitches Brew, a blend of rock, funk and jazz music, often taking the name “Fusion”.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. If there are indeed only a handful of albums that marked their own times in the way that Kind of Blue did, there are even less which, 60 years later, continue to bear the same importance. Even for musicians of the calibre of Coltrane and Bill Evans, there’s a special unplannable magic here, where every player is utterly in the zone and in synergy.

Honestly this sounds great, and if it was my only experience of this album, I would be perfectly content.None of the musicians had played any of the tunes before heading into the first of two recording sessions in early spring of 1959.
