TJR says

An enormously influential set from the trumpeter, bandleader and composer. Miles Davis is widely considered one of the most influential and innovative musicians of the 20th century; together with his musical groups he was at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music, including bebop, cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, and jazz fusion. On “Kind of Blue” Miles and his ensemble were testing the waters – could they take their hard bop fans with them on the journey to modality? The answer was a resounding yes; according to the RIAA, “Kind of Blue” is the best-selling jazz album of all time, having been certified as quadruple platinum (4 million copies sold).
