I first heard it when a friend
sat me down and said, “You don’t
even need a joint.”
After listening to Side One
I asked if Side Two was just
“I don’t know,” he said. “Side One
goes so high, I never got to the
other side of the mountain.”
I did. Found All Blues and
Flamenco Sketches. And thought
Kind of Blue
was just about the best American
music I ever heard. Nothing has
changed my mind since.
