Kind of Blue Celebration

Julian Joseph presents a celebration of the Miles Davis album Kind of Blue, in the company of trumpeter Henry Lowther. Henry toured and performed with Davis's regular collaborator/arranger Gil Evans. Lowther also met Miles whilst playing in Hollywood, as well as seeing him perform in England not long after the release of Kind Of Blue. He talks about the impact the album has had on his own playing, and provides musical insights and illustrations highlighting the importance of this landmark recording.
