“I’m not a big fan of Bitches Brew. In fact, I think it’s the emperor’s new clothes – ‘Oh, we have to like Bitches Brew because that’s what everybody says we have to like.’ But this album is one of the truly great ones.
“It’s the classic jazz album. It gets into the mood of what jazz is. You can tell the band is really listening to one another, and it affects what they’re doing; their communication is something you can almost feel. Lots of musicians don’t really listen to each other; they’re playing, but they’re in their own worlds. The players on Kind Of Blue are working together, and they’re totally on fire. It’s perfect for all the right reasons.”
