    Kind of Blue .... great album. Used to cover most of it and Milestones etc.
    Kind of Blue was kind of the beginning of a new age. Along with Giant Steps of course.

    What I really like is all the stuff that was recorded on Blue Note back in the 60's.

    I always liked this album best:


    On this first track of the album, it sounds like Trane is turned away from mics when it's his turn to play; check the 2:35 mark.

    This makes perfect sense to me. Some years ago I went to a music recital my younger brother was in at his high school. One of the acts in the show was a guitar ensemble. One of their pieces was All Blues and the arrangement made it sound just like the Allman Brothers. For a minute I thought they were playing Stormy Monday or something.

    Spectacular album. My favorite jazz album.

    I love how “All Blues” inspired something like Buddy Guy’s “No Lie.”

    Sure it's good, but have you heard the Weezer cover?

    Bass player friend turned me on to this in high school, 1971. Miles' muted trumpet kills me. I adore all his 50's stuff.

    I still listen to the album; prefer darkened room, easy chair and some volume.

    In all seriousness, I love Kind of Blue, but I think Somethin' Else by Cannonball Adderley and Miles Davis takes the cake for me.

    I was hoping someone would mention Jimmy Smith. I have one of his Blue Note pressings. Hope to find more.

    Love this album, the haunting piano intro on " Autumn Leaves " just sets up great things to come.

    Kind of Blue ( as a late to the jazz party recording, for me) opened the door for me to explore many other recordings by Miles, John Coltrane, and Cannonball.

    - and I really went maybe the most crazy with Cannonball, getting his live Quintet and Sextet recordings, and ( you can hear it!) this band was a force to be reckoned with. So powerful when they were really cookin,' and all amazing soloists too.

    Cannonball was a teacher, and I love hearing his 'lectures' just before the song they were getting ready to play.

    Preacher, teacher, sax wizard!

    Thanks so much! As soon as I hit play, my dog chucked up a puddle of yellow bile. 30 more seconds into it I bested her with 2 puddles. Now I know why I never tossed that record; It used to be my number one "party's over, pack it up, time to hit the road folks, house clearing album".
