Kind of Blue is the best selling jazz album of all time for a good reason. No, for tons of reasons! At that time in the late 1950’s, Miles Davis had been experimenting with “modal” jazz as a way to draw attention to the sounds of soloists and other sounds though keeping the background uncluttered. Recording with other jazz legends (John Coltrane, Jimmy Cobb, Julian “Cannonball” Adderly Paul Chambers, Bill Evans, and Wynton Kelly), Davis drew the best out of each to present what was then deemed a classic, and still is today. “So What” very quickly became a song that anyone claiming to be a jazz musician had to know how to execute well. “Freddie Freeloader” swings low and smooth while the rest of the album lulls you into the blues so well that you forget some of the blues influences embedded in each composition.
