Wow. Absolutely loved this album. I'm not a massive jazz fanboy, but this modal jazz stuff really gets me going. I love how all of the instruments feel like individuals talking to each other, each one saying something unique yet still talking about the same stuff. This is what I want when I want jazz. True Feelings: 5/5

This is the definition of a classic! What a flawless album from side A to side B. But that's to be expected with such a rockstar cast of performers. Everything is just solid. The songs are all jams, they transport me to a rainy city, a sunny island, a dream world. No trumpet has ever sounded as good as when Miles Davis plays on this album, it has such a rich and gorgeous sound that feels almost transcendent. I can't think of anything else to say, it's hard to put into words how amazing this album is, and how much of a joy it is to listen to. Favorite track: Blue in Green

Iconic, classic album in the history of music. Whereas the bebop before this is exhilarating like a rollercoaster with it's speed and complex chord progressions, this is like surrendering yourself to waves of key modulations as the most beautiful melodies swim around you. Hipster that I am, this isn't actually my favourite Miles Davis album but this Aussie still gives it five slices of avo toast for brekkie out of five.

This is what they should have played when Peter Parker said, "Now dig on this". You can always count on Miles Davis to create such a beautiful but fun jazz album. Honestly, I wish I could have plopped on a zoot suit before diving into this album, would have made the experience much more authentic. But, even without the zoot, still fantastic. All instruments pairing with each other at all times and I'm used to listening to a lot of Herbie Hancock so most of my jazz listening is very chaotic and the instruments pair together by being all over the place, but this time, It's much better hearing them all fight the good fight altogether. Overall amazing, nothing else to say. (also quick quip for my Tim and Eric boys, anytime I listen to jazz now, I can't help but think of the jazz session bit, "Imma throw this atcha. RRA DOO-J RA JOOJ RUBBADY SA") https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCzq-uCSvfY&ab_channel=JignishTheMarvel

Forget for a moment that the Wikipedia article says "Kind of Blue has been regarded by many critics as the greatest jazz record, Davis's masterpiece, and one of the best albums of all time." This is music we have heard our whole lives. There is clearly a reason for this. This is music that is composed, not just a jam session. This is technical art. You can either listen intently or just have it playing in the background. This is an album that has been STUDIED for decades. In the end, your opinion of whether you like it or not is completely irrelevant.

The idea of my adding something to the words written about Kind Of Blue is beyond ridiculous, so I'll just observe (which I'm sure is also far from original) what a hash ass mistress jazz seems to be in that era (I don't know about now, hopefully it isn't still cutting off geniuses in the prime of life right and left). Of the six musicians who accompany Davis on this album only 2 made it past 50, Bill Evans barely so, and among the whole crew only Jimmy Cobb reached what could reasonably be called old age.

This is one of the most versatile albums of all time. You want a great record to listen to with your full attention, eyes closed with $3000 headphones on? Kind of Blue! You want a record playing in the background while you work door at a dinner party? Kind of Blue! Coffee bar? Kind of Blue! End of the evening on a date and you're sitting on the couch and you want the perfect soundtrack while make your big move? That's right, Kind of Blue!

The man, the myth, the legend. Looks like the List God(s) heard my rant on the Beastie Boys review loud and clear. This isn't my favorite album from Miles Davis, but it's a welcome change of pace nonetheless. This is widely regarded as one of the all-time great jazz albums, and I think that's mostly about influence and what it represented in the '50s. I watched a couple videos explaining the birth of modal jazz that this album represents, which is huge. It's hard for me to hear it as revolutionary though, considering I worked sort of backwards through Davis' catalog. But it's a fantastic album either way. Not as engaging to me as Sketches of Spain or Bitches Brew (both of which BETTER be on this list), but it is very smooth, very cool, with fantastic solos from everyone involved. Big names in the ensemble too, John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley especially. Miles Davis was a creative force like no other. Favorite tracks: So What, Flamenco Sketches, Freddie Freeloader. Album art: Instantly recognizable because of how famous this album is, but pretty tame. Granted, many jazz albums had boring covers like this back in the day, but even compared to older Davis albums like Milestones or Porgy and Bess....there's room for improvement. I do like the font choice, though. 4.5/5

“Kind of Blue” by Miles Davis (1959) Classic jazz, with exquisite performances by Davis (trumpet), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Cannonball Adderly (alto sax), Bill Evans (piano). Listening today, we can recognize the roots of much of what was to come in music. Don’t look for chord structure or melody. This is pure improvisation by the above named musicians, taking turns leading the adventure, seeing how scales can be elaborated. It’s beautiful. That’s not to say that every note is perfectly attacked (or even chosen—surely the musicians would have improved details on a subsequent take or a dub, but that would violate the integrity of a jazz performance). Focus on the leading scales. The recording is unfortunately marred by distortion (especially on Coltrane’s feed), and the use of a minimum number of microphones results in a lack of definition, especially for the drums, which are very subdued in the mix. But overall, this album is an essential piece of our musical culture. Listen. Seriously. 4/5

Every music writer and listicle has told you this is the most iconic jazz album of all time. You brought a nice fillet of king salmon home. You're gonna cook a nice dinner for your sweetie. Take the night off sweetie, I got you, you deserve it. You cook the salmon too perfection - medium rare, still semi-translucent in the center, tender, simple salt and pepper. Exactly as specified in the recipe you found on The Spruce Eats. You've lit the candles - a 50 pack of tea candles from Amazon - and for the last two weeks have ritualistically consumed Cordyceps powder for sexual stamina. Bellies fulll. Romance is alive. Kind of Blue is dancing through your Sonos. You and your sweetie softly lock eyes, sensing something deeper. You remember the first time you met. Something feels different this time. Something is getting in the way. Something is obscuring the air between you. There's a trumpet playing. The carcass-like salmon skin fills your nostrils. Fish is not sexy! The medicinal mushrooms spike your pulse skyward. There's a trumpet playing! The cheap candles flicker and struggle to burn the mass produced wax. Amazon Prime! There's a trumpet playing! You hate jazz! You never loved your sweetie! B

‘So What’ and ‘Freddie Freeloader' are truly momentous, the gateway to new aural worlds no matter how many times you've listened. Their engine is joy. You can hear it in Coltrane’s sax and Miles' trumpet as they crest and lilt. But most of all, it resides in those goddamn drums. Oh boy. They’re irrepressible. It'ss impossible not to tap your foot to them until your shin ache. They subside in 'Blue in Green'. Once that happens, somnabulance takes over and I find myself a little lost. It's still undoubtedly beautiful, but never as revelatory as that opening one-two.

The sticking power of Kind Of Blue isn't exactly due to "timelessness". The entrance to Blue In Green, in particular, seems very much of a time. The magic of the tune, and the rest of the record, is the ground everyone is able to cover. Thus, a recording that compares favorably with any of the music released after it. There's fast playing, bluesy licks, and a high degree of freedom in playing. Often all in the same track, and all easy to listen to and just fit-together enough. The first two tracks, especially, go lots of places but always come back home. I'm not a huge fan of the subdued B side, where I hear the most minimal compositions. But many compositions would be improved if players of this caliber picked them up and spun them into something new.

Ch-ch-ch-Chanclas in the mix, here to judge them tracks and count them stacks, today were diving deep into that Jazz, with “kind of blue”. Chanclas likes the jazz, and after talking to Chanclas Batman, who also enjoys a nice jazz, we’ve agreed that this meets our criteria for “perfect” album. We’re giving the album 5/5 not in the sense that it’s filled with bangers but in the sense that the songs flow well into each other and keep you in the same kinda groove start to finish. Pairs well with a joint. True feeling: 4.2/5 stars Saved tracks: 3/5 Noteworthy note: 45:45 runtime (nice) Standout tune: all blues

Well Stevie…look at the album we manifested. Our anger yesterday at the lack of black musicians was heard. This album also answers a lot a questions. Namely, this is the first album on this list I have on vinyl and this is the first album on this list to get five stars. Kind of Blue is one of my favorite Jazz albums. I’ve listened to it going to sleep. I’ve listened to it while road tripping to Texas. I’m listening to it right now on vinyl as opposed to Apple Music. This is one of those albums with a shorter track list but longer songs. They are all great and perfect to listen to at any time. Whether you are happy, sad, or just kind of blue. Miles Davis quickly became one of my favorite Jazz musicians a few years ago with this album and Bitch’s Brew. I can’t express how happy I am to finally have an album of this caliber on this list. The album cover is simple enough. The songs are magical. I was worried a five star album would take forever to arrive with the content we have been given but here it is. And it’s Friday.

My introduction to classic jazz, and what an album. I have a very good vinyl pressing, containing 2 albums one of which is the original release, the second record includes the corrected speed version of side 1, which apparently was cut at a slightly too fast speed as well as an alternate version of Flamenco Sketches. This sounds just so amazing and the music is so brilliant. It really belongs in the collection of anyone with even a passing interest in jazz. A no-brainer 5 🌟album

I have 4 different pressings of this album on vinyl and two on CD so I may be biased. So What (sorry) happens when you assemble a crack all-star ensemble led by Miles at his technical and artistic peak? You get an iconic, genre defining album for the ages of course. I'm pretty miserly about handing out 5 star ratings and have only given out a few so far, but this is a no-brainer for me.

There’s nothing not to like about this album. The lineup and the compositions (tracks 1, 2 & 4 especially) are stellar. I like the decision to do the saxophone solos back-to-back, contrasting the warmth of Adderly and the edgier sound of Coltrane. This is the greatest selling jazz album of all time and the album most critics would put at or near the top of their all-time list, and I won’t disagree.

I've been busy the last couple of days with little time for listening to the music sent to us. There was no way I was going to slap a "did not listen" on this bad boy so have adopted the "better late than never" adage.  A well played but not too loud  trumpet played over subtle rhythms is magical. I could listen to a song like Blue in Green all night long and not get tired of it. The trumpet playing would be enough, but we also get to enjoy sax playing that is arguably as good.

One of those jazz albums that anyone, including people that don't normally listen to jazz, can listen to and appreciate. The only other Miles Davis record that I've listened to extensively is his aggressively eclectic 'Bitches Brew', which I'm inclined to argue is, at the very least, more memorable than 'Kind of Blue'. With all that said, this album is still incredible, and is the sort of thing that everyone should listen to at least once. Even non musicians can appreciate the exceptional musicianship on display here.

This is my favorite album of all time. It's one that I listen to rarely because I'm worried that if I listen to it too many times, I won't be able to appreciate its stark beauty. It's sad and sweet one moment, upbeat the next. What makes this album so great is that it is always absolutely painting a mood. You're meant to feel something with every song, and I always feel it. The instrumentation is exquisite. The compositions are sublime. Even the mistakes and imperfections, like the drummer hitting the cymbal a little too hard when Miles comes in on the first track just work. Put this album on a rocket ship and send it out into space. That way, if it's ever encountered by intelligent life, the aliens will get to see us at our absolute best 5/5

There aren't many jazz albums I sing along with--because they're instrumentals!--but this is one. I just find my voice singing whatever. I'm not sure why. It's only with this jazz album. Maybe it's because the music is just so damn smooth and melodic. Maybe it's because I've listened to and loved this album so much. Whatever the case, I drink this music. If music was a slushy alcoholic drink on a hot summer's day, the liquid would be blue, and the bottle from which the concoction came would have this album cover as a label.

Long ago in a lifetime far away I took a college jazz course for my music studies - very early in the semester our homework one weekend was this album. Just that - listen to this album. My previous exposure to jazz was probably anything random from a movie or tv show. I knew I didn't enjoy jazz singing so I assume that's probably what I thought I was getting into. I'm not sure the word or term "jazz" is accurate (too widespread) because this album blew me away literally the first time I heard it. The mysterious almost creepy no-time intro to "So What" sets everything up before that classic call and response between bass and piano and gradual build... it's awesome. There's a *space* to this album - I'm not sure how to describe it well, but that space gives the mystery. There's no overload of sound; it always feels like something's coming around the corner and retaining the uncertainty. The entire album feels like that - every track. I love it. Again, I'm probably still speaking out of ignorance but this album might be the one cliché jazz album that everyone knows. To use my words carefully here...so what. Nothing I'll write here will be new - jazz is a little down the list of my preferred genres and I'll still not pretend to be able to know more than the next person but this kind of jazz is what I love and this album is perfection - I'm primarily a rock fan but after >200 albums this is my first 10/10. 10/10 5 stars

This is a tough one to rate. I absolutely love swing-era jazz and have danced countless hours to it. As jazz moved to other styles, it kinda lost me. I dig this album, but I have to be in a certain mood for it. Nonetheless, this album deserves its spot in history.

oh hell yeah, one of the greatest jazz albums ever made Miles Davis’ the mf GOAT I heard the whole 2 hour legacy edition of Kind of Blue and it’s so good all the way through - 10/10 kind of bebop at some points but mostly a cool, slow jazz album I prefer Bitches Brew, but I think it’s great to hear the classic jazz that got him to where he ended up, making incredible psychedelic experiences

I afraid most of my exposure to jazz has come from Pink Panther and Charlie Brown cartoons. Listening to this album, I feel like this is what I think of when someone says jazz music. It has made me realize jazz music is quite a nice addition to my life. I feel a bit ill-suited to offer a meaningful review, but this sounded great to me and I loved listening to it. A cool way to chill the night away. I love it!

It is evident from the moment it starts that we are in some very capable and caring musical hands. Listening to Kind of Blue feels like lying in a raft gently rocking on a calm sea. So soothing, so laid back. My soul feels lighter. Each track is its own subtle mood and the shift from one to the next creates a clear arc through the whole piece. Absolute perfection.

For much of my life, I just couldn't get into jazz. When I decided to really give it a shot, it was Miles that I first went to. This is one of the albums that I now pull out every so often. It is a beautiful jazz album! I also think that it is one that is quite accessible, even for one who is not so much a fan of the genre.

This was not an immediate favorite but it has really, really grown on me as I let myself go with it, listening over the day. (Maybe jazz isn't meant for 6:00 a.m.) It worked much better on a lunchtime walk, although my surroundings kept transforming into a wet night with neon lights reflected on the sidewalk. After that first encounter I tried to figure out what I was supposed to be hearing. I read a lot of Wikipedia trying to understand just what "modal jazz" is. (Boy, that's a technical article. Is this how the musicians communicated about their work?) My very fragile understanding is that Miles Davis created a canvas that allowed for improvised, unrestrained solos. When I had that in mind, it became more remarkable, because, at its worst, jazz can sound like unbearable chaos to me. A bunch of random, screeching saxophone is my nightmare. This, however, was always lovely and harmonious despite flowing freely. It was something to "feel" more than "hear" and I loved how it felt.

On Day 1, my album was Birth of the Cool, and I said neither of these classics ever clicked for me. Well, I'm definitely enjoying Kind of Blue this time around. I always saw the skill... but first few times I heard it, I was just getting into jazz and was listening to it alongside Miles's fusion albums, which made it sound a little sedate. But it just has an energy of a different kind - a sort of rolling boil that never bubbles all the way over. I love how it's effortlessly laid back compared to bebop. My favourite jazz style is hard bop, and this has the same attention to clear melodic lines. Sidenote: I must be a hopeless ignoramus, because I still can't get my head around what "modal jazz" is in layman's terms. I gather that bebop used virtuosic chord progessions, whereas this uses modal scales for calmer, more expressive and melodic palette? However, I barely know what a chord is, and I can't get my head around what a mode is. It doesn't matter as long as I can enjoy the record, but it would be nice to work out what is happening, and be able to spot how it works in other jazz albums too. (I like a lot of Bill Evans, but again I couldn't tell you what exactly makes it modal...) Anyhow, this album is all quality. But I find it tapers off in excitement, beginning with the amazing "So What", then getting slightly less gripping with each track. 4/5 - glad I finally appreciated this one.

If you've stumbled upon my review of "Kind of Blue" while scrolling through, you don't need me to explain it's a classic. A quick look at this album on any corner of the Internet reveals a unanimous outpouring of praise: it cemented modal jazz as a definitive form of improvisation, influenced generations of jazz and rock musicians alike, and stands outside of its genre as one of the best albums ever made. Its place as an all time classic in musical history is safe, and objectively it's without doubt a 5*. That said, I'm trying to be as subjective as possible in these rankings, and jazz has never been my favourite genre. In the past I've struggled to stay engaged, to give the music my full attention, to appreciate the depth of feeling and talent on show. With "Kind of Blue", this hasn't been the case: the virtuosic talent and unbeatable expression of the soloists is inescapable. Their lines are often dazzling, frequently captivating: it's definitely the best jazz I've heard. "So What" is the album highlight. Just listen to that iconic piano and double bass conversation that kicks things off: anticipation slowly builds via subtle modulations and variations on one figure, before the trumpet solo bursts in as the cymbal crashes in and the bass starts a-walking. We then cycle through the soloists of the album (including John Coltrane on tenor sax) and all of them lend their own distinct flavour to the proceedings. In particular, Davis gives the trumpet more street cred than I ever thought possible. The other songs progress in the same way: alternating solos, instruments wrapped in dialogue with one another, variations in dynamics and accompaniment to keep things fresh. "All Blues" and "Freddie Freeloader", being more tied to blues structures, feel more familiar and less groundbreaking: to me, they come off as the most repetitive, even if the musicianship remains excellent. The two ballads are notable for their sparsity, as well as their beautiful melodic lines. In "Flamenco Sketches", I stopped trying to analyse and just let the mood sweep me away to some distant horizon: a perfect way to close. Because I still need to go further to "get" jazz, I'm keeping this at a 4 for now, but the work required is all mine: one day I hope I can fully appreciate the beauty Davis and co. have to offer.

You guys pretty much covered it all on this one. If I can go one step further, I almost think you could take 30 seconds from "So What" - the 15 seconds before the trumpet comes in, and then the 15 seconds after - and play that to any human being on Earth as a gauge for their tolerance of jazz. I really like a lot of Duke Ellington and that swing stuff, but there's no question that when people think of jazz as a genre they're thinking of the kind that's on display on this record. So, if you don't like that trumpet intro, then this ain't for you. If you do, then please drive through the gate. It's also nice that jazz is popular with audio nerds and these albums always tend to have really good remasters. Listening with headphones, I could hear what I assume is the reverb of the actual room they recorded in at times (especially with the sax on "So What.") Other times I could make out the faintest use of the brush on the snare drum, almost sounding like a record hiss or something. Took me a second to even realize what it was. Lastly, as someone who played trumpet in middle school and for one year of high school, I feel supremely qualified to comment that it's actually really hard to make a trumpet sound intentionally sad like it is on "Flamenco Sketches." Unintentionally sad? Yes. Daily. And I was first chair!

I don’t know. Pretty good I guess. Some great moments. I can never seem to separate this era of jazz and film noir tropes, therefore it makes it hard for me to purely listen. I felt like John Coltrane outplayed Mile’s a few times (or is that just because the sax is a more dynamic instrument?). Definitely had some moments, especially near the end of the album where I said, “wow.” 3

I know it makes me an unsophisticated simpleton, but my brain somehow isn't wired for jazz music. I can appreciate it, but it doesn't really resonate with me, no matter how many times I try. Having said that, I do appreciate this type of jazz more than many other sub-genres. It's listenable and doesn't grate on my nerves. I could definitely see myself in a dark, smokey lounge, sipping an old fashioned and listening to Miles Davis and crew playing these songs on stage. I know it's a classic, but for me it's 3 stars.

So _this_ is what they play on my local classical/jazz FM station when they make the switch at 6PM. Our family always dubbed it 'noisy jazz'o'clock' and had a laugh. "Blue in Green" is an excellent noir track, but the rest of the album is stereotypical unstructured jazz with complex chords, tones, measures and bars that don't usually sound 'pleasant' while still being technically competant.

Not for me. I don’t like the ‘busy’ sounds. First time listening to a jazz album
