Liner Note Author: Don Mizell.
This collections's subtitle, "The Jazz Greats Who Played on Kind of Blue," lays out explicitly the concept behind this interesting label project. Luckily, pianists Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly, and saxophonists John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley all recorded as leaders for Riverside or Prestige (which Fantasy now owns) at some point in their careers. Evans and Adderley even made a excellent album together titled KNOW WHAT I MEAN? from which three selections here have been taken. As befits the distinct musical tone of KIND OF BLUE, these are all beautifully moody performances, some of which are among the artist's best, including Coltrane's early "Theme For Ernie" and Wynton Kelly's "Willow Weep For Me." The latter leading off the compilation is especially welcome since the always underrated Kelly (who played on BLUE's "Freddie Freeloader") never quite received the recognition he deserves.
