Sundays are for God and good music

One of my favorite jazz albums off all time has been
reworked to bring a different dynamic. Jeremy Taylor
back in 1981 recorded an Lp called "Reggae Interpretation
of Kind of Blue". This Lp remixed Miles Davis' "Kind of Blues".
Not only did he do it justice but brought jazz to new heights.
Vibe to this
