“blue session” by gbmediadesign

Miles Davis’ masterpiece Kind of Blue is 60 years young this year. Part of today’s show focused on the music and why it is still as relevant as the day it was released. If you want to know why Kind of Blue is the greatest selling jazz album of all time, I invite you to watch this excellent documentary on its making that also provides exceptional critical insight from some jazz masters. Checkout this week’s playlist to see what was featured on today’s show. Don’t forget that you can see what was featured on the last show, “transport” by clicking here.

This week’s artwork titled, “blue session” is a montage of images from the Kind of Blue recording session, and pulled together by yours truly.

As always, thanks for looking and listening!
