There’s no real way to tell why a record captures the imagination and attention of the world. &nbsp;Some do, some don’t. &nbsp;Miles Davis constantly recorded music, and&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">almost all of it added to his popularity and critical acclaim. &nbsp;But over the years, Kind Of Blue found a larger and larger audience. &nbsp;Soon enough, it became the best selling Jazz album of all&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">time. Through the host Josh Jackson and interviews with musicians </span>Herbie<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Hancock, Jimmy Cobb, Jackie McLean, David </span>Amram<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and others, you will hear the story of the making of Kind&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Of Blue, as well as the lasting impact of this classic Jazz staple.</span></div><p> Sat, 08 Feb 2014 05:00:00 +0000 39750 at http://redriverradio.org Mile Davis: Kind Of Blue America's Music Festivals: Moab Music Festival http://redriverradio.org/post/americas-music-festivals-moab-music-festival <p><strong>Airs Monday, July 30 at 11:00 a.m.</strong> Moab, Utah borders two of the nation&rsquo;s most spectacular national parks &ndash; Canyonlands and Arches. Naturally, the local Moab Music Festival takes advantage of the incredible landscape and moves performances directly into the gorgeous red-rock country. The signature event of this festival is a concert series that unites classical chamber music and the beauty of nature &ndash; the series actually takes place inside a grotto carved by the Colorado River. Concert goers climb into boats, tour the river and find themselves inside the magical space where chamber music fills what critics call God&rsquo;s version of Carnegie Hall.
