Replacement copy soon to arrive, we shall see. The surface is dead quiet. I just played it without cleaning with only a carbon brush sweep. Bass is there, piano is lifelike and the horns are crisp. I have the legacy CD and this gram version is better. The packaging is only average. The outer sleeve is thin and the seems are flimsy, but the inner sleeve is a quality poly material.
The disc is heavy, clean, and flawless. There is no information about the source material so it may be digital source, but the sound to my ears is fine.
I bought this version due to the many quality control issues posted about the classic records gram version. If it is digitally sourced then so be it, I recommend it. My equipment is modest. This record makes my system sound audiophile!

The liner notes list Davis as author of all compositions, but many scholars and fans believe that Bill Evans wrote part or the whole of "Blue in Green" and "Flamenco Sketches". Since its release on August 17, ,  Kind of Blue has been regarded by critics as Davis's greatest work; it is his most acclaimed album, and has been cited as the best-selling jazz record ever released,   despite later claims attributing the achievement to Davis's first gold record Bitches Brew One reviewer has called it a "defining moment of twentieth century music.
Kind of Blue is consistently ranked among the greatest albums of all time. Kind of Blue isn't merely an artistic highlight for Miles Davis, it's an album that towers above its peers, a record generally considered as the definitive jazz album, a universally acknowledged standard of excellence.
Why does Kind of Blue possess such a mystique? Perhaps because this music never flaunts its genius. In , the arrival of Ornette Coleman on the jazz scene via his fall residency at the Five Spot club, consolidated by the release of his The Shape of Jazz to Come LP in , muted the initial impact of Kind of Blue , a happenstance that irritated Davis greatly.
Evans formed his influential jazz trio with bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian ; "Cannonball" Adderley fronted popular bands with his brother Nat ; Kelly, Chambers and Cobb continued as a touring unit, recording under Kelly's name as well as in support of Coltrane and Wes Montgomery , among others; and Coltrane went on to become one of the most revered and innovative of all jazz musicians. Even more than Davis, Coltrane took the modal approach and ran with it during his career as a leader in the s, leavening his music with Coleman's ideas as the decade progressed.
According to Acclaimed Music , Kind of Blue is the 49th most ranked record on critics' all-time lists. Larkin described it as "the greatest jazz album in the world". The album's influence has reached beyond jazz, as musicians of such genres as rock and classical have been influenced by it, while critics have written about it as one of the most influential albums of all time. I've listened to that album so many times that for the past couple of years, I haven't hardly listened to anything else.
Its vapory piano introduction is universally recognized". I play Kind of Blue every day—it's my orange juice. It still sounds like it was made yesterday". Gary Burton , of Berklee College of Music , noted the consistent innovation present throughout the album, stating: "It wasn't just one tune that was a breakthrough, it was the whole record.
When new jazz styles come along, the first few attempts to do it are usually kind of shaky. Early Charlie Parker records were like this. But with Kind of Blue [the sextet] all sound like they're fully into it.
Fifty years after its release, Kind of Blue continues to transport listeners to a realm all its own while inspiring musicians to create to new sounds—from acoustic jazz to post-modern ambient—in every genre imaginable. The Kind of Blue musicians appeared together in further recorded ventures through the s.
Late in his life, from the electric period on, Davis repeatedly disregarded his earlier work, such as the music of Birth of the Cool or Kind of Blue. In Davis's view, remaining static stylistically was the wrong option.
It's over What I used to play with Bill Evans, all those different modes, and substitute chords, we had the energy then and we liked it.

When Shirley Horn insisted, in , that Davis reconsider playing the gentle ballads and modal tunes of his Kind of Blue period, he demurred: "Nah, it hurts my lip.
