Tony Kofi leads an all-star band celebrating Miles Davis’ highly innovative ‘Kind of Blue’ album, featuring the original numbers and some of the band’s own compositions inspired by it.

More than a milestone in jazz ‘Kind of Blue’ is a defining document of twentieth century music, one of those rare, influential works of art that achieve popularity among musicians, critics and the public alike. Even if you’ve never owned this classic album you’ll instantly recognise ‘So What’, ‘Freddie Freeloader’, ‘Blue in Green’, ‘All Blues’ and ‘Flamenco Sketches’ as old friends.

Presented by Sheffield Jazz
