S5.E11: Kind of Blue, with Listener Jonathan
Listen now
Listener Jonathan returns to the podcast (as all Supporters are welcome to do) to take an in-depth review of perhaps the most influential jazz album of all time: Miles Davis’s 1959 masterpiece “Kind of Blue.” What’s the story? What makes this recording so groundbreaking and so influential?  What is modal music? What does the track-by-track analysis reveal? What are the connections to yacht rock?  Why were so many yacht rockers so enamored with the jazz convention? How does all of this lead to Steely Dan (in more ways than one!)
