Perhaps jazz's most important record of all time, Kind of Blue is canon for stating both the beauty and complexity of its genre. Miles Davis prepared very little with his band before they launched into the recordings, but Sessions '59 offers a glimpse at the process that led to one of the best-selling jazz records of all time.
Saturday July 1st 1961. John Coltrane is playing at the Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island, along with McCoy Tyner on piano, Reggie Workman and Art Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. You should have been there, he was electric. Thankfully, with this recording it’s like you really were. On vinyl.
