Kind of Blue Nocturne

"Everybody knows what Kind of Blue is." (Ron Carter)

A poignant little note here, we think. Year 2009 marks the 50th anniversary of the recording of Miles Davis' landmark work "Kind of Blue."

We referred to this recording in the original prospectus for the "Blue Nocturne" and the newly acquired CD has been in constant rotation of late.

To commemorate this event Columbia Records last year released the 50th Anniversary Edition (multi-disk) and just this year a "Legacy Edition" (two less disks the Anniversary version). We been stewards for two album (elpee) versions of the recording, at least one CD release, and now the Legacy edition. Just a C-note (and that's not a musical reference in this instance!) away from acquiring the full 4-disc Anniversary edition! Now, if you REALLY want to support The Nocturnes you could check out our Wish List (Navbar to the right) - it's listed there.
