    If you can find it, check out the book-on-tape version with Levar Burton, if only for comedic affect.

    Reviving this thread...

    Just finished up this book "Kind of Blue: The making of a masterpiece" by Ashley Kahn

    The author had special access to the studio tapes as well as side interviews with surviving witnesses.

    It's a nice analysis on the individual takes/tracks as well as the bio in and around the time of the recording (1958-1960).

    I found it very nice to listen to the album while reading the book
