Miles Davis: Kind of Blue      (7 of 9 found this review helpful)
  Review by nickc March 1, 2005

Now I can officially say that I have wasted the first 35 years of my life having never listened to this disc until a week ago - but as they say better late than never! This music is as beautiful and profound as a Beethoven string quartet slow movement or a Mahler adagio (though on a slightly smaller ... more

  Review by akiralx February 28, 2005

A fine set Ė Chopinís Nocturnes should perhaps only be listened to in groups of 3 or 4, but this complete survey (with the Impromptus thrown in) will satisfy the needs of most listeners, especially those with multi-channel capabilities.
