If you just hear [ Quiet Village ] on record, it sounds like a whole jungle—you don't know how or where any of those sounds originated.
But if you hear it "live," then you can see how it's all done, with the percussion instruments. On top of that are layers of exotic percussion, plus the sounds of the vibes, the piano, and of course the bird calls. It all adds up to a modern sound that evokes some very primitive feelings. Purves Pullen , also known as Dr. Horatio Q. In , The Ritchie Family recorded a disco version and added vocals. In , the pianist George Russell published his Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization ,  which offered an alternative to the practice of improvisation based on chords and chord changes.
These insights helped lead the way to the " modal " approach in jazz. Satisfied with the results, Davis prepared an entire album based on modality. As was Davis's penchant, he called for almost no rehearsal and the musicians had little idea what they were to record. As described in the original liner notes by pianist Bill Evans, Davis had only given the band sketches of scales and melody lines on which to improvise.
While the results were impressive with so little preparation, the persistent legend that the entire album was recorded in one pass is untrue.
That take, not the master, was issued in as a bonus alternate take. Pianist Wynton Kelly may not have been happy to see the man he replaced, Bill Evans, back in his old seat. Perhaps to assuage the pianist's feelings, Davis had Kelly play instead of Evans on the album's most blues -oriented number, "Freddie Freeloader".
However, the Newport Jazz Festival recording on July 3, , reflects the band in its hard bop conception, the presence of Bill Evans only six weeks into his brief tenure in the Davis band notwithstanding, rather than the modal approach of Kind of Blue. Kind of Blue was produced by Columbia staff producer Irving Townsend. Macero did not produce Davis until after Townsend took over West Coast production duties for Columbia Records, when Macero took his place.
The original LP did not credit a producer. Kind of Blue is based entirely on modality , diverging from Davis's earlier hard bop style of jazz with its complex chord progression and improvisation.
Modal jazz was not unique to this album. Davis himself had previously used the same method on his Milestones album, the '58 Sessions , and Porgy and Bess , on which he used modal influences for collaborator Gil Evans 's third stream compositions. No chords When you go this way, you can go on forever. You don't have to worry about changes and you can do more with the [melody] line. It becomes a challenge to see how melodically innovative you can be. When you're based on chords, you know at the end of 32 bars that the chords have run out and there's nothing to do but repeat what you've just done—with variations.
I think a movement in jazz is beginning away from the conventional string of chords Bill Evans wrote in the LP liner notes, "Miles conceived these settings only hours before the recording dates. The liner notes list Davis as author of all compositions, but many scholars and fans believe that Bill Evans wrote part or the whole of "Blue in Green" and "Flamenco Sketches".
Since its release on August 17, ,  Kind of Blue has been regarded by critics as Davis's greatest work; it is his most acclaimed album, and has been cited as the best-selling jazz record ever released,   despite later claims attributing the achievement to Davis's first gold record Bitches Brew One reviewer has called it a "defining moment of twentieth century music.
Kind of Blue is consistently ranked among the greatest albums of all time. Kind of Blue isn't merely an artistic highlight for Miles Davis, it's an album that towers above its peers, a record generally considered as the definitive jazz album, a universally acknowledged standard of excellence.
Why does Kind of Blue possess such a mystique? Perhaps because this music never flaunts its genius. In , the arrival of Ornette Coleman on the jazz scene via his fall residency at the Five Spot club, consolidated by the release of his The Shape of Jazz to Come LP in , muted the initial impact of Kind of Blue , a happenstance that irritated Davis greatly.
Evans formed his influential jazz trio with bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian ; "Cannonball" Adderley fronted popular bands with his brother Nat ; Kelly, Chambers and Cobb continued as a touring unit, recording under Kelly's name as well as in support of Coltrane and Wes Montgomery , among others; and Coltrane went on to become one of the most revered and innovative of all jazz musicians. Even more than Davis, Coltrane took the modal approach and ran with it during his career as a leader in the s, leavening his music with Coleman's ideas as the decade progressed.
According to Acclaimed Music , Kind of Blue is the 49th most ranked record on critics' all-time lists. Larkin described it as "the greatest jazz album in the world". The album's influence has reached beyond jazz, as musicians of such genres as rock and classical have been influenced by it, while critics have written about it as one of the most influential albums of all time.
