If There's a Stairway to Heaven, This is the Soundtrack: Epochal 1959 Record the Mt. Rushmore of Jazz Sessions
How do you properly introduce Kind of Blue? Perhaps by unequivocally stating that it is the best-selling jazz album in history. Or by affirming that, every year, the inimitable 1959 effort sells tens of thousands of copies - even more than five decades after its original release. There's also the matter of its status as the most-referenced, and arguably, most important, jazz recording of all-time. And the presence of the dream team lineup comprised of Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. The blueprint for melodic improvisation and vamping, Kind of Blue simplifies tonal organization and chordal progression into an eminently beautiful, introspective tapestry stitched with swinging poetry, mellifluous soloing, transcendental harmonies, and group interplay of the highest caliber. If there's a stairway to heaven, this is the soundtrack.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g 45RPM LPs at RTI, this deluxe box-set edition of the often-reissued album is a must for every music lover. Such is the illuminating transparency, reference dynamics, organic warmth, and instrumental detail exposed by the thoroughly scrupulous mastering process. The imaging clarity, frequency extension, and window-on-the-world breadth afforded by this analog audiophile pressing places listeners in the studio with the sextet. Close your eyes and your experience will parallel that of the players that recorded these gems. You'll feel as if you've been whisked away to a jazz holy land.
