(The Rewind Button is a group blogging project. Every Thursday, we review an album from Rolling Stone’s Greatest Albums list.)
I suffered from the oft-heard complaint that jazz just sounds the same when I listened to Miles Davis’ album, Kind of Blue.
Don’t get me wrong, I got to the half-way point of the almost hour-long album but by then I had had enough. What I did listen to was excellent. When it started I felt I should be in a dark bar just listening to the man play. (Yes, I think in cliches).
That would have been the best way to listen to Kind of Blue. Next time, I’ll try listening to it in my living room with low lights and maybe a glass of bourbon.
