At the core of Kind of Blue: Legacy Edition is the original 45-minute album program, whose five titles – “So What,” “Freddie Freeloader,” “Blue in Green,” “All Blues,” and “Flamenco Sketches” – are indelibly etched in our contemporary musical DNA, be it jazz, rock, third through fifth stream classical, or beyond. The transformative album weds Spanish themes, lush orchestrations, romantic timbres, and Davis' increasingly lyrical methods in a tender ceremony that resonates more than six decades after its original release. Track titles are often in a condensed font, tall and thin, to squeeze more in, but in this case it’s the album title font that marks out the printer, and probably the collocated pressing plant. So to clarify all of that, the first track on side two is in fact ‘All Blues’ and the album closes with ‘Flamenco Sketches’.

IPS / Dolby SR analog remix master to DSD 256 to analog console to lathe Seven Steps to Heaven arrived at a crucial junction in Miles Davis' career.As we set out to make our UHQR series the world’s best-sounding vinyl records, we have also used Clarity Vinyl, which is free of any carbon black pigment which might introduce surface noise.

This speed issue affected the album’s first three tracks, “So What,” “Freddie Freeloader” and “Blue in Green,” making them a barely perceptible quarter-tone sharp. But anyway, here we are on side 2, which brings me to the second notable feature: Adderley and Coltrane have swapped sides.In comparison, the UHQR remix not only sounds farther back but also has more reverb than this and the original vinyl pressing. Although this session is not as structured as the three-horn efforts of the Jazztet, there is a balance between blowing and Golson's writing that makes for a felicitous blend, whether on Golson's own "My Blues House," Gene Krupa's old burner, "Drum/Boogie," or Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays.

The data capture is industrial scale, outside my capacity, but if anyone wants to build a data capture tool, I’ll happily front it. Kind of Bluealso benefited from Miles’ being signed to the leading major record company of the day — Columbia Records, a part of the CBS media conglomerate. Davis led a sextet which included pianist Bill Evans, and saxophonists John Coltrane and ‘Cannonball’ Adderley. One of the greatest albums of all time, back in on blue vinyl'Kind of Blue' is the now classic studio album by the legendary American jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, recorded in 1959 at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City.Columbia’s vinyl reissues were (from memory – the fact-checker is on leave) 1963 (two eye) and 1971(red Columbia all round). Davis played trumpet sublime with his ensemble sextet featuring pianist Bill Evans, drummer Jimmy Cobb, bassist Paul Chambers, and saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley with Wyton Kelly playing piano on Freddy the Freeloader. Its source is probably unknown, and it’s very unlikely to be an original master / safety master / production master or similar. The label correction is believed to have taken place around November 1959, on the instruction of Teo Macero (hat tip Enrico!

It is not as simple as there being a “first pressing”, then a gap of several years, and then the record company decides to reissue it, with a second pressing. Had it been other plants, big names like Capitol, contract pressings, there would be other indicators, etchings, die groove variations, of which there are none. Despite that, once ones ears have adjusted and the volume tweaked upwards to compensate for the disc being quieter than modern versions, it has a lovely, natural feel, with great dynamics. Johnson at Skywalker Sound in Marin County, California, Break The Chain has twelve new MacLeod songs. The much touted all-time multi-platinum sales figure is 4 million to date, in all formats including CD and download, I imagine worldwide, but I don’t think that figure is helpful in getting to vinyl sales.All sessions took place at Columbia’s old 30th Street Studio, supervised by Columbia staff producer Irving Townsend, and recording engineer Fred Plaut. LJC says: please feel free to weigh in if you think I’ve got something wrong (which you can put straight), or you can add something to the story, speak up, perhaps your promo doesn’t fit with my m.
