Kind of Blue isn’t merely an artistic highlight for Miles Davis, it’s an album that towers above its peers, a record generally considered as the definitive jazz album, a universally acknowledged standard of excellence. Why does Kind of Blue posses [sic] such a mystique? Perhaps because this music never flaunts its genius… It’s the pinnacle of modal jazz — tonality and solos build from the overall key, not chord changes, giving the music a subtly shifting quality… It may be a stretch to say that if you don’t like Kind of Blue, you don’t like jazz — but it’s hard to imagine it as anything other than a cornerstone of any jazz collection.
—Stephen T. Erlewine

Bob is especially interested in ‘the soul’ of the things without one, the expressiveness of the lifeless, the essence of material….. macro photography, ‘things’ in particular.
‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…

    Love the shallow focus on this one! A great series of shots! You have inspired me to have a go at something similar with my son’s saxophone – may post the results for you to laugh at! :-D

  • Glad you like this series… check my portfolio… I also did a saxophone! and I will only laugh about the results when it’s funny… it’s always nice to inspire someone…;-)

    I’m not sure why I chose the B&W version , I guess it is just the timeless atmosphere B&W has ….. All the same your mesmerizing photography ROCKS
