In 1959 the legendary jazz album “Kind of Blue” was recorded. It was a recording that marked a turning point in jazz. On this episode of Inquiry, we talk with writer and reviewer JAMES KAPLAN. His new book is a dynamic musical history that traces the lives of the artists that played on that album and what happened afterwards: 3 SHADES OF BLUE: MILES DAVIS, JOHN COLTRANE, BILL EVANS AND THE LOST EMPIRE OF COOL.
