BLUE IS GREEN
Most Certainly a Modal Jazz Classic..
Kind of Blue is not only regarded as one of Davis's masterworks, but one of the most influential albums in the history of jazz. One reviewer has called it "a record generally considered as the definitive jazz album, a universally acknowledged standard of excellence." Several of the songs from the album have become jazz standards and are very often covered by others.
Influenced by Russell's ideas, Davis implemented his first modal composition with the title track of his 1958 album Milestones. Satisfied with the results, Davis now prepared an entire album based on modality. Pianist Bill Evans, also an enthusiast of Russell, but recently departed from the Davis band to pursue his own career, was successfully drafted in to the new recording project - the sessions that would become Kind of Blue.
Kind of Blue is a jazz album by musician Miles Davis, released on August 17, 1959. As of January 16, 2002, it has been certified triple platinum in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Though precise figures have been disputed, Kind of Blue has been cited as Davis's best-selling album, and as the best-selling jazz record of all time. It is also counted by many as the greatest jazz album of all time and ranks at or near the top of many "best album" lists in disparate genres.

Miles Davis / Bill Evans - Flamenco Sketches
There is something so ethereal about Kind of Blue, Flamenco in particular. It is so masterfully crafted that no matter when you listen to it, regardless of age or experience, it will always hit you like it was your first time hearing it. There are precious few musicians who have found that level of artistic nirvana
