Event Details

After endorsing the rhythm & blues inflected hard bop early in his career, by the late 50's trumpeter Miles Davis was moving toward a modal style of playing. This was first exhibited on the title track of his "Milestones" album in 1958 but it was his 1959 album, Kind of Blue, when Davis totally gave himself over to it. Featuring the all star line up of Davis, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, "Kind of Blue" has become one of the best-selling jazz albums of all time. This landmark LP helped change jazz forever and also influenced rock artists such as Pink Floyd and soul producers such as Quincy Jones.

Join us at 8 pm to listen to music that either inspired or was contemporary to this LP such as Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane. You can also order pizzas made in the the Hanbury Arms brick oven and the Hanbury are kindly offering two-for-one pizzas to CAS attendees.

Doors close at 9:30 and at 9:45 pm Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy relays the story behind the album. Then the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our audiophile hi-fi which includes a Rega Apheta MC Cartridge, Rega P9 Turntable, Klimax DSM with Preamp, Linn Klimax Solo Power Amps, Chord Signature Speaker Cable, Chord Cadenza interconnects, ISOL-8 Substation Integra and Bowers & Wilkins 802 Diamond Loudspeakers.

Listening guidelines apply.
