On its latest cover, Kind of Blue is pronounced 'perhaps the most influential and best selling jazz modal changes and Miles Davis' free melodic conception. “Blue”— an album which is a note-for-note remake of Miles Davis' landmark album “Kind of Blue”. MOPDtK (to abbreviate the band's cumbersome name). “Kind of Blue”--Miles Davis (). Added to the National Registry: Essay by George Grella, Jr. (guest post)*. Album cover. Original label. Miles Davis.

It sold very well from its first day, and it has sold increasingly well ever since. It is the best-selling jazz album in the Columbia Records catalogue, and at the end of the twentieth century it was voted one of the ten best albums ever produced. But popularity or commercial success do not correlate with musical worth, and it is in the music on the recording that we find both quality and significance.

From the very first notes we know we are hearing something new. Piano and bass draw in the listener into a new world of sound: contemplative, dreamy and yet intense. Evans played spaciously and had an advanced harmonic sense. His sound was floating and open. The lighter sound and less crowded manner were more akin to the understated way in which Davis himself played.


What exactly is modal jazz? There are two characteristic features that set this style apart. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

Sure, we're glad to have this, but -- please note, it is not a complete transcription as claimed; the drum part is not transcribed.

Instead the transcribers fink out by writing "Drums play time" -- uh, yeah, that's what jazz drummers do all right. But there's a good reason why jazz drummers spend a lot of time with this recording. The transcribers don't know about that, apparently. The bass part also gets neglected in some areas with a just "bass walks.

Miles Davis: Kind of Blue

There are many different ways to walk a bass, and there can be genius in this too. What a horn player plays can be affected by what the bass player is doing. My other beef with this book is that it is not in concert pitch, except for the piano and bass parts when provided, see above. Sure hope you're good at sight-transposing from Bb and Eb, or perhaps you play saxes in various keys.

For the rest of us it's a big bother. It would have been much better to put the whole thing in C, as most serious instrumentalists who play a transposing instrument can read C music.

Overall accuracy seems solid. So, better than nothing but somewhat disappointing. Paperback Verified Purchase. Great book, the solos are transcribed as written not concert so I have to transpose if I wanna learn them on a concert instrument I dont play wind instruments which is fine.

Still trying to figure out how tf Bill Evans could actually play some of these chords though haha musta had some big ass hands to play 10ths. OK, getting this transcription book is a no brainer. Kind of Blue is as close to being part of every jazz musicians education as anything ever will be. So--here's the question: Why isn't there a complete score for this album, with all parts comping, bass, drums--not just the solos transcribed and presented in score format, the same way that classical masterpieces are?

Somebody needs to collect the separate transcriptions that I know are out there, and put this thing together!

Here's an example of what can be learned from this kind of book: Every jazz piano student learns Bill Evans' comping voicings for All Blues, but how many learn it the way Evans actually played it--using 2 notes per hand--not all 4 notes in one hand?

Spot on transcriptions. Some people rate jazz on how inaccessible and esoteric it can be. I don't. This era and these players are a great way to listen to jazz horn improvisation.

As you can probably detect from listening to the songs first, all of Davis's solos except Freddie Freeloader are playable by all levels of play. Also good are Coltrane's 2 and Adderley's 1 ballad solos. Cannonball seems to rush his solo on the recording but if you slow it down just a little bit, the notes will come in clearer.

So I wrote about five bars of that and I recorded it and added a kind of running sound into the mix, because that was the only way I could get in the sound of the finger piano.
