Product Description

Product Description

Miles Davis Kind of Blue, an album that has just celebrated its 50th anniversary, remains one of the most iconic and influential jazz albums of all time. In his autobiography, Miles discussed his intentions for this unique body of compositions and the conditions in which it was recorded: "I found a new piano player in February [1959]; his name was Wynton Kelly. There was another piano player that I liked and his name was Joe Zawinul (he would play with me later). But it was Wynton who came into the band. Wynton was from the West Indies, from Jamaica, and had played with Dizzy for a minute. I loved the way Wynton played, because he was a combination of Red Garland and Bill Evans; he could play almost anything. Plus, he could play behind a soloist like a motherguffer, man. Cannonball and Trane loved him, and so did I. Wynton joined us just before I was going into the studio to make Kind of Blue, but I had already planned that album around the piano playing of Bill Evans, who had agreed to play on it with us. We went into the studio to record Kind of Blue on the first or second day of March 1959. We had the sextet of Trane, Jimmy Cobb, Paul, Cannonball, myself, and Wynton Kelly, but he played on only one tune: Freddie Freeloader; That song was named after this black guy I knew who was always seeing what he could get from you free, and he was always around the jazz scene. Bill Evans played on the rest of the tunes. We made Kind of Blue at two recording sessions one in March and the other one in April. In between, Gil Evans and I took a big orchestra and did a television show with a lot of the music on Miles Ahead. Kind of Blue also came out of the modal thing I started on Milestones. This time I added some other kind of sound I remembered from being back in Arkansas, when we were walking home from church and they were playing these bad gospels. So that kind of feeling came back to me and I started remembering what that music sounded like and felt like. That feeling is what I was trying to get close to. That feeling had got in my creative blood, my imagination, and I had forgotten it was there. I wrote this blues that tried to get back to that feeling I had when I was six years old, walking with my cousin along that dark Arkansas road. So I wrote about five bars of that and I recorded it and added a kind of running sound into the mix, because that was the only way I could get in the sound of the finger piano. But you write something and then guys play off it and take it someplace else through their creativity and imagination, and you just miss where you thought you wanted to go. I was trying to do one thing and ended up doing something else.

The moment I saw the cover I bought it. I'm a Miles Davis fan, but I don't buy blindly. The moment I received it I just stayed a while enjoying the photograph and the design. It's obvious that this is not a cheap, average public domain edition of the record. This one is made with dedication. I check the inlay and I find insightful liner notes, one of them by Bill Evans. Being very clear that is difficult -or impossible- to outsmart the original one as it became a true icon, this edition brings high quality standards to such an emblematic title. I just tested the record on my turntable and I find the sound to be excellent. Of course I have the original, but this edition has real merits on its own. Highly recommended!!

I was very disapointed with the quality of this pressing ..... there was a series of noises at the start of Side B. On closer inspection of the vinyl, I could see a noticeable area of pits in the surface. I wouldn't find this satisfactory for any standard of record ..... nevermind an audiophile pressing ..... where was the 'Direct Metal Mastering' Quality Control Dep't when this was made ?
