2009 marks the 50th Anniversary of the original release date of Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue.
The album was released in August 1959, stunning the jazz world by practically
creating a new language of music. Its influence goes far beyond jazz.
Kind of Blue is universally considered to be one of the best albums of all time, of any genre.
Fifty years later, Kind of Blue-the epitome of spontaneous invention-
is still the best selling jazz album ever.

Legendary jazz drummer, Jimmy Cobb (the only surviving member from the original recording)
leads a contemporary all-star band (musician detail above.)
The group will perform their interpretations of Kind of Blue's five masterpieces:
"So What", "Freddie Freeloader", "Blue In Green", "All Blues", and "Flamenco Sketches"
plus other classics by Davis, John Coltrane, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley,
and original compositions inspired by this era.
