Mr. Cope's Cave: Kind of Blue 

Friday, I explained I wouldn't be around over the weekend, or this morning, to produce today's blog. So I produced it Friday.

More precisely, Miles Davis produced it 57 years ago, when he gathered Julian "Cannonball" Adderley (sax), John Coltrane (sax), Paul Chambers (bass), Jimmy Cobb (drums) and Bill Evans (piano) in a New York City recording studio and turned these five tunes into one of the most satisfying, coherent albums to come out of the last century.

I am not exaggerating, and I'm not the first to say it, that Kind of Blue is the kind of jazz that even those who think they hate jazz find themselves getting all groovy with.

Please, do not expect me to explain what "getting all groovy" means. You either get it, or you don't.

Enjoy, and I'll be back Friday. I have something to tell you.
