About this deal

Kind of blue , due to its commercial success is sometimes given a wide berth by jazz purists who insist there is better stuff out there. Consistently rated not just as one of the greatest jazz albums but as one of THE greatest musical statements of the 20th century, its 46 minutes of improvisation and sophistication remain peerless. A first rate orchestra (The Boston Pops), a distinguished conductor (Arthur Fiedler), and a superb pianist (Earl Wild) combine to make this landmark recording something to be treasured. Although this session is not as structured as the three-horn efforts of the Jazztet, there is a balance between blowing and Golson's writing that makes for a felicitous blend, whether on Golson's own "My Blues House," Gene Krupa's old burner, "Drum/Boogie," or Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays. I wonder if my neighbors are growing concerned about me now that I’ve listened to the same album 4 times in a row.

Every UHQR will be hand inspected upon pressing completion, and only the truly flawless will be allowed to go to market. Older digital recordings are often flawed by a rush to market philosophy, combined with early digital recording technology.

Like just about every other historic album, there are many different CD releases on the market of the same thing, well not quite.

I have been caught all too many times by what should have been a better quality sound recording, to find it was in fact much worse. At the core of Kind of Blue: Legacy Edition is the original 45-minute album program, whose five titles – “So What,” “Freddie Freeloader,” “Blue in Green,” “All Blues,” and “Flamenco Sketches” – are indelibly etched in our contemporary musical DNA, be it jazz, rock, third through fifth stream classical, or beyond. All image and audio content is used by permission of the copyright holders or their agents, and/or according to fair dealing as per the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

All sessions took place at Columbia’s old 30th Street Studio, supervised by Columbia staff producer Irving Townsend, and recording engineer Fred Plaut. Fiedler’s performance of Offenbach’s Gaite Parisienne combines delightfully lyrical music with spectacular sonics to create an unforgettable listening experience. Long held as the jazz album that even non-jazz fans might own, ‘Kind Of Blue’ changed the way Jazz was perceived.
