My favorite Jazz artist. First time I heard this I thought "this is the best jazz has to offer" and despite may great jazz records by Mingus, Coltrane, Dave Brubeck, and others, this is still as good as it gets.

A timeless classic jazz album featuring great music and, as well as Miles Davis, other great artists such as John Coltrane and Paul Chambers.

One of the most beautiful jazz albums ever made and probably the most famous and successful. Miles Davis has made at least a dozen classic recordings and this is up there with the best of them. Every piece is sublime, it constantly reminds you of how stunning music can be. Part of the reason why it is so popular, aside from it's excellence, is the fact that it is the most accessible of Davis recordings meaning that this is the place to start if you want to discover the music of Miles Davis. Kind of blue, is perfect, and still continues to dazzle almost sixty years on.

Kind of Blue is without a doubt the greatest album in jazz history, and one of the greatest of all time. I didn't listen to jazz until I heard All Blues off this album, and since then my musical tastes haven't been the same. No trumpet player was able to express himself through his instrument quite like Miles, and he assembled an incredible group of musicians around him, highlighted by the two sax players in Adderley and Coltrane. Pure gold all the way through.

If not the greatest Jazz album of all time then the most accessible and a great introduction to the genre by one of the most influential band leaders in jazz history!

Amazing album from a genre I never thought I'd really appreciate. The playing on here is so great, not just Miles but also the drummers and other instrumentalists. I always knew that jazz drummers were considered leagues ahead of rock drummers, but damn. I was gonna give this a 95 instead of a 100 because I usually need vocals in my albums, but this is so good that I can momentarily forget that little "rule." My only real point of reference in the jazz world is Time Out by Dave Brubeck and this is Miles ahead of that.

I start to listen jazz from this album. It is really very emotional one, and I think everything what can be said about this, has been said for many times. So, lets just listen and enjoy masterpiece of music. So What is my favouirite, what a song name! In Woodstock Festival Miles made just one, 37 minutes song. Some reporter ask: What was the name of the song? "Call it anything" was classic answer in same style as "So What". 99/100 points, a record that I would take to desert island, one of ten records.
