USA, 1959, modal jazz / cool jazz
Miles Davis – Kind of Blue: There aren’t many jazz albums I sing along with–because they’re instrumentals!–but this is one. I just find my voice singing whatever. I’m not sure why. It’s only with this jazz album. Maybe it’s because the music is just so damn smooth and melodic. Maybe it’s because I’ve listened to and loved this album so much. Whatever the case, I drink this music. If music was a slushy alcoholic drink on a hot summer’s day, the liquid would be blue, and the bottle from which the concoction came would have this album cover as a label.
