When jazz trumpeter, Miles Davis, released the album, “Kind of Blue,” in 1959, he redefined jazz and influenced every genre of music for generations to come. Loved by casual listeners and revered by musicians and critics, the album ranked number 12 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time and is arguably the top selling jazz album in history.
