To many jazz fans and musicians, Miles Davisís Kind of Blue is the definitive jazz recording, capturing a variety of moods through musical modes interpreted by Davis, trumpet; Jimmy Cobb, drums; Paul Chambers, bass; John Coltrane, tenor sax; Cannonball Adderly, alto sax; Wynton Kelly, piano (on Freddie Freeloader), and pianist Bill Evans, with whom Davis worked up the compositional sketches.
Jazz historian Dan Morgenstern describes one reason for the timeless quality of this most classic recording: "It's so well balanced. There is not an unnecessary note in any of those pieces. And you keep coming back to it. It doesn't wear out its welcome."
