This is one of those solos that all jazz pianists NEED TO KNOW. It comes off of Miles Davis’ iconic album, “Kind of Blue” (1959). Wynton Kelly’s solo sets the tone for this blues.

His melodic development and sense of swing are unparalleled, and have been imitated by future generations ever since.

Check out this solo and don’t miss what Wynton Kelly has to offer!
