Sketches Of Spain 50th Anniversary This Sunday!

This coming Sunday, July 18th, marks the 50th anniversary of the Columbia Records release of "Sketches Of Spain," one of the highlights of Miles Davis' career and modern jazz in general. On this classic record, his first after "Kind Of Blue," Miles and producer/arranger Gil Evans crafted a beautiful and passionate evocation of the music and traditions of Spain. The album's cover is also a true classic: it features the first appearance of the silhouette logo which would become the ultimate trademark of the artist.
