If you had a long Monday like me here is a great tune to help you unwind. Miles Davis’ “Blue in Green” Even the title sounds relaxing. The piece is modal with open spacing in the chords. In fact ‘space’ is a great adjective for this piece. The melodies, drums, bass and improv lines all take their time creating a laid back feeling.
If you are unfamiliar make sure you check out the whole album, “Kind of Blue” a true jazz landmark recording!
Miles was in a league of his own. Kind of Blue is my personal fav Jazz album. I can’t go wrong with Miles, and I can’t forget Chet.
One of those albums for sure… the stars were definitely aligned when they recorded Kind of Blue. The whole album has such a cool vibe!
