  • The Non-Kind of Blue List!

    The jazz musician said he "changed music five or six times." Well, did he really? We check the claim with Sean Jones of the Berklee College of Music, digging into Miles' archives with ears wide open.

    Birth of the Cool is still very fresh (the scoring is vibrant). French horn and tuba, along with the "west coast" coolness, but with more edge than a lot of "west coast jazz" records. Konitz and Mulligan are superb. The work with Coltrane is among the best jazz ever recorded, for sound, tunes and performance. Never could get into Bitches Brew. I recall hearing Tutu years ago and was surprised at how accessible it was, not in a "smooth jazz" way, but in the true tradition of jazz (taking a standard and improvising).
