Kind of Blue

This was the first Jazz CD I ever owned.  I currently have over 200 Jazz CDs and Kind of Blue is still #1 on my list.

What are your favs?


Cannonball Adderley: Something Else (Same personnel as KOB sans Coletrane) 

Oliver Nelson: The Blues & Abstract Truth, Screaming the Blues

Joe Henderson: Mode for Joe

Walter Booker: Bookiie's Cookbook 


I like the album Something Else with Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley. Anything that came out of Van Gelder Studio in New Jersey at that time sounds great. +1 on Ben Webster as well.

The Rudy Van Gelder remasters on Blue Note were an indication to me that digital had hope. These are all great! I’ve now crossed almost entirely to the Dark Side…
