In 1959, Miles Davis recorded what is widely regarded as his most inportant album, Kind of Blue, with his then working sextet featuring John Coltrane. This ground-breaking and popular album has become the highest selling jazz album of all time, going quadruple platinum. It was further honoured by the US House of Representatives in 2009, when they voted 409-0 in favour of naming the album as a national treasure. Gary Crosby brings his outstanding all-star Nu Troop sextet to Dean Street for a rare live performance of Miles Davis’ masterpiece.
