One of my all-time favorite albums in any genre. Classic groove.

One of the best of all jazz albums ever - the epitome of cool hard bop.

A recording that will always sound fresh as the day it was recorded. It is the work of a genius at the height of his creative talent. Miles Davis was fortunate to have unique band mates that brought such strength to the recording sessions. "Kind of Blue" is a celebration to my ears that gives me an inner joy that I feel every time I hear each of the tracks. Picking my favorite track would be like asking me which of my children is my favorite. They are all beautiful creations!

One of my top 5, in an awesome Jazz collection. Totally Klassique..!!! and totally, ALL first take recordings done for that album, *2 Flamenco Schetches. One and done! That is how good the musicians are and what is heard. SOooo good... I used to listen to it everyday before going to work.

Trying out some different jazz records since I am not familiar with the musical genre. The only jazz album I own is by John Coltrane. I always thought Miles Davis (trumpet) was hard bop or whatever they call dissonant jazz music, but this album is truly lovely. John Coltrane plays on this album and all of the members really add a nice texture to the album. This album is (was?) the highest selling jazz album is the U.S. – I believe it and I think I may have to buy a copy myself!

One of the most important jazz albums. Personally, this album is really calming after having played some of the tunes.

Although its over fifty years old, it still sounds fresh, languid, and groovy.

Simply the best jazz record ever recorded. Remember it was made in 1954, yet it feel vital and fresh as ever. The music is melodic and powerful. The genius of Miles Davis is shown here like none other of his many fine recordings.

Disc 1 has been damaged by inconsiderate patrons.

Possibly the most beloved jazz album of all time. If you don't appreciate this album, you are not a jazz fan, period. Davis, Coltrane, and Evans on one album! A whole new type of music by Davis, a musician that continuously reinvented himself just when people caught on to the old Davis.
