VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Miles Davis – ‘So What’
July 15, 2017
There’s a lot of nonsense spoken about jazz, usually by people who know nothing about the genre.
However, those with a healthy curiosity and thirst for music are respectfully urged to take 10 minutes out of their day and luxuriate in one of the most influential recordings of all time.
This is music that’s both groundbreaking and entirely accessible, non-verbal communication at its highest and a musical conversation that elevates music to art. and it’ll break down any preconceived notions of what jazz is or isn’t about.
Once ‘So What’ – and its parent album ‘Kind Of Blue’ – get under your skin, they’ll be with you forever.
And if you want to see how effortlessly cool this music is, check out Miles and the boys having a smoke during John Coltrane’s sublime saxophone solo.
