In 2019 the legendary Miles Davis album Kind of Blue celebrated its 60th anniversary.
To mark the occasion Oslo Jazzfestival invited Mathias Eick to interpret these tracks and the album in its entirety.
Kind of Blue, arguably one of the best known jazz albums in the world, represents one of the most important crossroads in jazz: this is where Miles said his fare well to be-bop and moved on to a more laid back, melodic and lyrical soundscape. Mathias Eick, known from his albums with ECM as well as collaborations with Chick Corea and Manu Katché, is undoubtedly the man for the no doubt daunting task of performing this incredible album. An absolute must at this years festival.
Produced in collaboration with Bergen International Festival
