The Miles Davis Estate Kicks Off Record Store Day Black Friday at Vacation Vinyl in celebration of new, limited edition vinyl “Blue Xmas,” with special guest KJAZZ D.J. Bubba Jackson.
Miles Davis, Gil Evans and bebop singer Bob Dorough turned the holiday season on its ear in 1962 with “Blue Xmas,” a jazzy original mocking the commercialism of the Christmas season. “Blue Xmas” along with “Devil May Care,” another Dorough original recorded by Davis and Evans, has been released by Legacy Recordings for Record Store Day Black Friday 2014 as a 7″ 45 RPM blue vinyl single in a brand-new picture sleeve. “Blue Xmas” is featured in Jingle Bell Rocks!, a new documentary about alternative holiday songs to be released this year by Oscilloscope Laboratories.
