Kind Of Blue: The Making Of The Miles Davis Masterpiece by Ashley Kahn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was such a satisfying book. I took my time reading it as I would often need to stop and listen to a particular piece of music before continuing. Sometimes the music was a song that was a precursor to the recording such as "Peace Piece" by Bill Evans. Other times, I would have to stop and listen to the songs themselves and hear all the nuances the author points out that I may not have noticed before. At any rate, it's a book that can be read quickly, it's not too long, but really living with the music was such a satisfying and delightful experience.
