Hugely influential, the tone is quite understated but lots of emotion on display.

Best: Blue in green, So what

Worst: All Blues

Jazz is surely the most important musical genre of the 20th century. And the album "Kind Of Blue" is by far the best jazz album of all time. Even if you do not like jazz, you have to love this incomparable masterpiece. The album is probably one of the coolest album of all time (still today, while this album at over 50 years old). Miles Davis conveys emotions through this record such as melancholy, romance, joy ... This album is also revolutionary for jazz, it is the inventor of modal jazz and the New Age movement. Miles Davis is actually an artist who touches me. This is my favorite musician: these melodies are so beautiful. He is a really important artist. I think this album is the greatest musical emotion of all my life. I even learned all the pieces of the record at the piano so much I'm a fan. I recommend this classic to 10000%.

I'm just waiting for Jessica Rabbit to walk in with her red dress trailing behind her!

All joking aside, this is a superb album with a real sleazy lounge bar feel about it in parts. That isn't a criticism by the way!

On the right occasion, I love it and the rest of the time I engulf it!

Kind of Blue is jazz for everyone. Not in a demeaning way to say that they're sellouts, but in that, it is very accessible and is highly effective at creating dreamy, jazzy moods. I can't say it moves me emotionally, but it is nonetheless highly enjoyable. Favourites: So What, Freddie Freeloader. There's no denying the incredible talent of every group member, and I think everyone should listen to this simply due to the massive significance this has if nothing else.

While this album is something awesome, great tunes, great instrumentalists with a lot of groove, I dont consider it his best work. In a Silent Way remains Miles Davis best work for me... just cant get enough of that vibe that comes from it.
