It Hit The Racks On August 17, 1959

Take a moment to breath in the medicinal airs of “Blue in Green.” Thanks, Bill. Thanks, Miles.

The brushes on “All Blues,” the trumpet solo on “Freddie Freeloader,” Trane’s entry on “So What”? C’mon, what’s your favorite moment on Kind of Blue?

Fred Kaplan explained things pretty well a few years ago, didn’t he?

Don’t forget Ashley Kahn’s opus.

  1. Coltrane’s phrase between 3:15-3:18 in the clip above. Something about it puts a lump in my throat every time.

    Great blog. Keep it up.
