Originally released by Columbia Records on August 17, 1959, Kind of Blue heralded the arrival of a revolutionary new American music, a post-bebop modal jazz structured around simple scales and melodic improvisation. Trumpeter/band leader/composer Miles Davis assembled a sextet of legendary players -- Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), Paul Chambers (bass), Jimmy Cobb (drums), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Bill Evans (piano) (Wynton Kelly plays piano on "Freddie Freeloader") -- to create a sublime atmospheric masterpiece. Fifty years after its release, Kind of Blue continues to transport listeners to a realm all its own while inspiring musicians to create new sounds -- from acoustic jazz to post-modern ambient -- in every genre imaginable.

Disc One of Kind of Blue: 50th Anniversary Collectors Edition features the original album in its entirety with the "Flamenco Sketches" alternate take, the rare "Freddie Freeloader" false start, and a selection of in-the-studio dialog from the Kind of Blue sessions. Disc Two presents rare musical material circa the Kind of Blue recordings, including the very first session by the classic Miles Davis sextet (May 26, 1958 -- Davis's 32nd birthday -- with Adderley, Coltrane, Evans, Chambers and Cobb), as well as studio material -- "On Green Dolphin Street," "Fran-Dance," "Stella By Starlight," "Love For Sale" -- previously available only on the Grammy-winning Davis and Coltrane boxed set (The Complete Columbia Recordings 1955-1961). Also included on Disc Two is the first authorized release of two extended live performances: "So What" from the April 9, 1960 Den Haag Concert featuring Miles, Coltrane, Kelly, Chambers and Cobb; and "All Blues" from the April 8, 1960 Zurich Concert (featuring the same band). Disc Three is a DVD including an in-depth documentary illuminating the story behind Kind of Blue and the historic April 2, 1959 television program Robert Herridge Theater: The Sound of Miles Davis, starring Davis and Coltrane.

This deluxe Collector's Edition also includes a vinyl LP copy of Kind of Blue, a poster, and an LP-sized 60-page hardbound book.
