A TAV Essential Listening Album – Often referred to as the definitive jazz album. While Miles possibly sought to break ground for modal jazz in the jazz genre, he ended up breaking ground for jazz in the entire musical canon with this album. Another hallmark of this album was that accompanying Miles were other jazz legends - Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly on piano, John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley on saxophone, along with Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums.

Note: An audiophile 45rpm version of this album is also available here.

"Long held as the jazz album that even non-jazz fans will own, Kind Of Blue not only changed the way people regarded Miles, it changed the very face of music itself. Consistently rated not just as one of the greatest jazz albums but as one of THE greatest musical statements of the 20th century, its 46 minutes of improvisation and sophistication remain peerless." - BBC

"Kind of Blue isn't merely an artistic highlight for Miles Davis, it's an album that towers above its peers, a record generally considered as the definitive jazz album. To be reductive, it's the Citizen Kane of jazz -- an accepted work of greatness that's innovative and entertaining. That may not mean it's the greatest jazz album ever made, but it certainly is a universally acknowledged standard of excellence." – AllMusic
