'Ashley Kahn's book about the making of this album is at once a serious work of jazz history and an appreciation of several modern masters' Sunday Times 'Kahn's prose is luminous, his research exemplary and the book itself a joy to handle...Granta's production values fully reflect the importance of its subject' Jazzwise 'A thorough, entertaining, well-illustrated read with a concise style...a model of research, artfully interpsoses his narrative with illuminating quotes which gives the book a trustworthy, multi-angled documentary feel' Mojo 'A perceptive, generous-spirited, engaging work which offers much insight into the jazz scene surrounding Kind of Blue's release. This book is a lovingly crafted object. The design is classy, with some inspired touches' Scotland on Sunday


This is a tribute to one of the most popular jazz albums of all time "Kind of Blue" by Miles Davis. It contains amomgst other things transcriptions of the unedited session tapes; in-depth interviews with musicians; Columbia Records files; vintage photographs; and a foreword by the last surviving member of the band, drummer Jimmy Cobb.
