announcer: welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm shirley griffith. if one album had to explain jazz, a strong candidate would be "kind of blue" by the trumpet player and bandleader miles davis. this week on our program, steve ember and gwen outen tell the story of "kind of blue."

(music)

voice one:

"kind of blue" has influenced musicians for more than forty years. it is also a favorite of listeners. the recording industry association of america marked the sale of three million copies in the united states as of two thousand two.

(music)

like many other albums, "kind of blue" was made in two recording sessions. these took place for columbia records in new york city in march and april of nineteen fifty-nine.

voice two:

stories about the making of "kind of blue" say there was nothing unusual about the project. when the musicians arrived, miles davis gave them some short, simple descriptions of the music they would play. he is said to have written these notes just a few hours earlier. his piano player, bill evans, helped him write some of the music that would get the musicians started.
