6. Flamenco Sketches- alternate take
Who knew in 1959, when Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb recorded a midtempo/ballad album built around scalar modes, that it would become the most popular jazz album of all time? Since its release, KOB's selections--the bluesy "So What," and "Freddie Freeloader," the waltz-like "All Blues," the dreamy "Blue in Green" and the Spanish tinged "Flamenco Sketches"--have become standards. The latest version of this classic LP is reissued in a new 2-sided DualDisc format, which includes an audio version, 5.1 multichannel surround sound, studio outtakes, and a photo gallery. It also includes "Made in Heaven: The Story of Kind of Blue," a documentary about the legendary recording, featuring a wide array of musicians and fans, from Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes and rapper Q-Tip, to Shirley Horn, and Cobb (sadly, KOB's last surviving musician). --Eugene Holley, Jr.
DVD SIDE: * Entire album in 5.1 Surround Sound and enhanced LPCM Stereo * 25-minute making-of documentary, Made In Heaven, featuring black-and-white film and stills, the voices of Miles Davis and Bill Evans, plus interviews and more. This disc is intended to play on standard DVD and CD players. May not play on a limited number of models.
On what is likely the disc that Wynton Marsalis will have to realize he will never be up to, the 5.1 channel sound has accomplished the impossible of making a perfect recording sound ever more perfect, more intimate, more of the moment. This is the jazz CD you are not allowed to die before listening to. So much has been written that it's positively stupid for me to extol its virtues any further. Instead, let me just encourage you to pick up this edition, set it into your very best 5.1 sound system, close your eyes. This music is right there all around you and for a disc that always sounded so incredibly essential, that has just taken on an entirely new meaning. I like this far more than the SACD version, and I hope Columbia and the Davis estate will consider giving this treatment to his entire ouevre. That should finally send Wynton and his Coca-cola glissandos off the Chrysler building for ever. This is the disc that all of us point to when Troupe, Wynnie and the entire retro-jazz clique say they don't get it: well, it was never about the notes, lads, it was about the silence between them. You'll hear that as never before on this version. - o dubhthaigh
So what more can anyone want from an album?
KIND OF BLUE has been reissued so frequently that I fear something is amiss if a year goes by without a new and improved version popping up somewhere in the world. This 2005 edition provides an audiophile surround-sound option that is compatible with regular DVD players (unlike the SACD version which requires special hardware). On both 5.1 versions the sound is subtly widened while keeping the integrity of the original mix. As a bonus option there is a 25 minute video documentary about the album, featuring interviews with prominent musical artists from different generations and genres. All but the most knowledgeable Miles fans should find it to be an informative overview of arguably jazz's greatest album of all-time.
In the documentary drummer Jimmy Cobb -- the only surviving participant -- stated that he didn't understand why KIND OF BLUE stands out above any of Miles' many other outstanding albums. Perhaps it is because the user-friendly music satisfies the listener at whatever level they prefer. If you want to get emotively involved with the music, it leads you there. If you're a musician looking to pick apart the music, you'll discover a level of sophistication attained by very few. If you want to relax, the music is soothing on its surface. If you want to hear memorable improvisations, Miles and his sidemen lead the way by avoiding the use of cliched phrases. If you want to hear teamwork, the musicians know how to create together (when to play and when NOT to play). If you want something timeless, the music's freshness has no expiration date. Yet if you have a nostalgic twinge for the cool, acoustic jazz of the 1950s, this album will take you back in time. - By J. Lund "jazzbrat"
