Miles’ ‘Kind of Blue’ Turns 50

Kind of Blue is turning 50 and to celebrate Columbia/Legacy Recordings is releasing a jam-packed 50th anniversary edition of the seminal Miles Davis album on Sept. 30. In addition, Morrison Hotel Gallery will present a traveling exhibit of Davis photography beginning in November.

While the album’s 50th birthday won’t actually come until next year-it was recorded in March and April of 1959-this collector’s edition may actually keep you busy until then. The boxed set includes two CDs, a newly-produced DVD documentary, a 60-page book, Kind of Blue on 180-gram, 12-inch vinyl, in-depth liner notes and a series of memorabilia.
