Miles Davis “Blue Xmas” 7″ 45 RPM blue vinyl single
In 1962, Miles Davis, Gil Evans and bebop singer Bob Dorough turned the holiday season on its ear with “Blue Xmas,” a jazzy original mocking the commercialism of the Christmas season. This recording, along with “Devil May Care,” another Dorough original recorded by Davis and Evans, is being 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.
