Every once in a great while, a recording comes along that embodies every bit of soul and feel the musicians have. Kind Of Blue captures simplicity at its best. Miles displays control of his horn like no one has to this date. Coltrane expresses himself with great form and provides the tension and relief that propells this recording with fantastic forward motion, a concept that few can capture. Cannonball Adderly shines with brilliance all over this CD, some of his best solos on any disc. If you like Jazz, there is no question that this CD must be in your collection.

Is there any need to review this jazz masterpiece? Possibly the biggest selling jazz album ever, and you can tell why. "So What?" has two chords throughout, and is a masterpiece of modal jazz. Similarly, All BLues is a triumph, in fact, they are all masterpieces! Anyone remotely interested in jazz should (already) own a copy, and anyone not into jazz, this is why you should be!

By far one of the best Jazz recordings around. With a line up of the greats what more could you ask for. With the classics like "fredie the freeloader" to "all blues" every emotion is toched and moved. I as a guitar player, find this cd to be very insperational and very moving. Highly recommened for a road trip or just hanging around.

Music is Music. Guitar or not, means nothing. We often can learn more from other instrumentalists than we can from fellow guitarists. This group of players at this session is smoking. A re release ,with more accurate mixing and a bonus take never released, this is just blowing changes at its best. Must Have in any Jazz collection!

How could this not be on here till now? Considered one of the best Jazz albums ever. Known to be a great use of modal work. There are about ten different releases of this album: The LP, the CD, the remastered CD, the super-remastered CD, the ultra-super-20bit-sony- studio-omega edition, and some others. Get the cheapest.
