PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ
“If there are indeed only a handful of albums that marked their own times in the way that Kind of Blue did, there are even less which, 60 years later, continue to bear the same importance. The members of this group would soon enter the firmament of jazz legends. The trumpeter was able to blend their contrasts, John Coltrane’s fluid and burning breath, Bill Evans’ impressionist harmonies, in order to produce an album that is justly considered among the most precious in the history of recorded music.”
