Jazz Books

Had an easy weekend. Spent time alone and got through both Ashley Kahn’s A Love Supreme : The Story of John Coltrane’s Signature Album and Kind of Blue: The Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece. Enjoyed both books. Kahn’s writing, especially on the sessions of recording the pieces, gives readers deeper appreciations on two of the most influential jazz albums. These two CDs are back on heavy rotations. Kind of Blue is for relaxing, and A Love Supreme is for spiritual uplifting.
