Rocktober 4 - Rainy Day Sunday

Today it's about music to fit the mood of a rainy day. I choose Miles Davis, Kind of Blue.

Track List:
So What
Freddie Freeloader
Blue in Green
All Blues
Flamenco Sketches
Flamenco Sketches (alt take)

I came to this album about 10 years ago, when I was feeling overcome with ennui and looking for something to commiserate with. What I love about music is how it all overlaps and informs other genres - you can't have rock without blues, jazz and even country. Listen to some old scratchy country and some 70s punk and you'll find the thread that binds them. This is the kind of music that feeds your mind. Love that power.
