We kinda quickly celebrated Bill Evans’ birthday yesterday, but today we have occasion to continue. 55 years ago to the day, Kind of Blue - perhaps the single most influential jazz album ever recorded - was released…

We’ll recreate the whole of the original album in this Jazz for Midnight hour…

William Blake died on Aug. 12, 1827 - impoverished, considered eccentric, if not a lunatic by his contemporaries, and with all of his writings languishing in obscurity…
To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.
