About this deal

Long held as the jazz album that even non-jazz fans will own, 'Kind Of Blue' not only changed the way people regarded Miles, it changed the very face of music itself. The pinnacle of high-quality vinyl — the Ultra High Quality Record (UHQR®) from Analogue Productions!

Compare this to the UHQR version and that suddenly sounds a bit odd: the sax is pushed back in the mix which leaves its reverb tail (caught in the bleed to centre channel) sounding distinctly detached in the right loudspeaker. It's why the our engineers took every available measure to transport listeners to the March and April 1959 sessions that parlayed modal jazz into mainstream language.Centre stage, the bass is richly full-bodied, its weight and tunefulness also eclipsing anything you’ll hear on vinyl, and the ever so lightly brushed drums on the right are sweetly, spine-tinglingly soft. Early letter-denominated mothers and stampers were used to press further copies with the corrected label for Side 2. In away, the story of Ben Webster's saxophone career is the story of jazz music itself through decades of experience.

Here we hear a blowing session that matches him with fellow tenorist Harold Ashby in a program of loose originals. The pure authenticity devoid of any sonic ‘tricks’ allows one’s psyche to truly relax so you can fully immerse in the music like a hot bath.After playing Kind of Blue over 100 times, I have hardly played it (or any of the earlier Miles stuff) since I discovered the amazing trove of delights from the 70s such as Pangaea, Agharta, Big Fun, Jack Johnson, etc. Designed to bring the focus back on the groove and bottom-end frequencies, the funk-loaded On the Corner revolutionized jazz. So much has been said and written about Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue, it's virtually impossible to summarize all the necessary info to the length of this page.

The album features Davis's ensemble sextet consisting of saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley, pia

The “earliest pressings” (promos and first release) are most likely from Bridgeport CT, which I believe is usually indicated by a “T” hand etched. Pietro confirmed that his source, the Ermitage production master, is in fact a first generation copy of the ‘back-up’ correct-speed original master. This album showcases Cooper’s theatricality, storytelling prowess, and ability to create an immersive world of horror and fantasy. Long held as the jazz album that even non-jazz fans might own, ‘Kind Of Blue’ changed the way Jazz was perceived. Similar to mono, stereo promos were found in four combinations of offset letter pairs, unique letters are E, K, AC and AE, each found as side 1 and side 2, but never mixed eg there is no 1E/1AC or 1K/AE.
