In the Spring of 1959 Miles Davis was dissatisfied with bebop. He saw it's increasingly chord-laden compositions as hindering creativity. He was favoring an approach emphasizing far less chords, and more room to explore. Often based on a single scale, "modal jazz" offered more melodic freedom. Davis took five musicians into what was formally a Presbyterian church in Manhattan to record the landmark album Kind Of Blue. With a penchant to capture spontaneity, there were no rehearsals. The musicians, given only vague outlines of scales and melodies on which to improvise, had little idea what they were to record. One an early April morning in 2012, Pacific Northwest acoustic jazz/blues guitarist Eric Skye imagined the Kind Of Blue as a solo acoustic guitar adventure. Armed with a 00-sized guitar and a favorite old wooden chair Skye took on the five tunes that have inspired him for so long with an adventuresome in-the-moment improvisational spirit resulting in A Different Kind Of Blue.
