I love Kind Of Blue, and Miles Davis’ follow up Sketches Of Spain, is just as good. What started off as a normal jazz album with one jazz version of a classical Spanish composition turned into this interesting mixture of jazz and classical music. I can’t really call this “fresh” or “new” seeing how the album is 54 years old, but I but it was “fresh” and “new” in 1960. Considering that Kind of Blue had came out only 11 months earlier, this was a huge stylistic change for Miles. Although, Miles wouldn’t be Miles if he stayed the same.
