Groundbreaking jazz and chiptune combine to produce “Kind Of Bloop”, an 8-bit tribute to the late great Miles Davis.
When Miles Davis released “Kind Of Blue” at the tail end of the 50s, he opened a gate not only for jazz but the whole of music. His modal masterpiece has influenced a number of legendary musicians since and is still regarded as the greatest jazz album of all time. But it also captured the imagination of its listeners, one of whom – Andy Baio – decided to put together a compilation of jazz covers all made in the style of chiptune music (8-bit video game music for the “n00bs”).
