Audio engineer, Mark Wilder, and Producer, Steve Berkowitz, explain the conversion process from analog to digital in this short video.
For those uninitiated, Miles Davis is one of the most revered figures in all of jazz history — in all of music history, really. Recorded in 1959, Davis’ Kind Of Blue is now considered to be the quintessential hard bop jazz session ever put to tape, by both part-time aficionados and professionals alike. And for good reason, the album is pure genius. If you have never had the pleasure of listening to Kind Of Blue, I highly recommend you grab yourself a tasty beverage — perhaps even a smoking jacket to help set the mood — and give it a go.

Now, no matter what some people may tell you, there is no substitute for listening to an album of this caliber on vinyl, but I understand not everyone has that luxury. This isn’t the greatest quality, but it’s the best I could find on YouTube at the moment.
