Kind of Blue – So What

Miles Davis released his definitive album Kind of Bue in August 1959 yet this month we are blessed with a “50th Anniversary” box set edition which includes everything but a Miles kitchen sink.

This was the album that was my gateway into the world of jazz. I found it to be a world which contained great music but also contained a great deal of music which was to my ears unlistenable, even the albums I do like often sound to Mrs D like five people playing five separate songs!

Jazz fanatics tend to be dedicated to the genre and listen to nothing but jazz, my musical tastes are too liberal to be restricted by such a culture.

Jazz to me features in many of my playlists and if you embrace the jazz vocalist into the genre such as Billie, Ella, Nina et all then it will account for many an hour of enjoyable listening.

So here is perhaps one of the best known openings to an album and song the classic that is “So What”
