New Shoes: Kind of Blue at 60 – Schapiro 17


SKU: 756 Category:



Schapiro 17 re-imagines Davis’ legendary release…turning the music into virtually new compositions using Miles’ tunes as the starting point. He does this most obviously, by translating the lean sound of the sextet that assembled in the spring of 1959 into the wide-screen colors of a jazz ensemble in the tradition of the Ellington and Basie bands of the ’40s, and of Gil Evans’ work with Miles on records like “Birth of the Cool”, “Miles Ahead”, “Porgy and Bess” and “Sketches of Spain”.
