August 17, 1959 saw the release of the seminal album ‘Kind of Blue’ by Miles Davis
This iconic work, that would become the biggest selling Jazz album of all time, is 60 years old this year; and sounds as fresh today as it did on its release.
It is a universally acknowledged masterpiece, revered as much by rock and classical music fans as by jazz lovers; and still sells thousands of copies a week, worldwide

To mark this anniversary Bristol trumpeter/composer Andy Hague put together a stellar cast of local musicians to create his project to revisit the music, with a complete track-by-track re-interpretation of the 1959 Miles Davis classic, Debuted at the Bristol Jazz Festival in March this work turned out to be more than just a tribute

In fact, the sell-out audience witnessed a remarkable performance that exceeded expectations on all fronts.
It was accurate, empathetic and nuanced to near perfection, beautifully delivered by this group of musicians.

Davis said that he had attempted to get closer to mixing African and Gospel music with the blues, yet admitted he didn’t quite achieve his aim. Nonetheless, he created his most famous work, containing two of the most popular standards of modern jazz, “So What” and “All Blues.”

At the time it was made, Kind of Blue was a revolution in itself, a radical break from everything going on. Turning his back on standard chord progressions, Davis used modal scales as a starting point for composition and improvisation (which he would radicalise ten years later); he broke new ground creating warmth, subtlety and understatement in the thick of hard bop.

Kind of Blue turns 60 this year but in reality, its ageless.
Tonight will be an opportunity to hear this landmark music again, with a little more information about the album, delivered with pathos and fine musicianship.
This is a don’t miss gig!
