Just because it's brilliant. Miles Davis on trumpet and John Coltrane on sax, with Wynton Kelly on piano, Jimmy Cobb on drums and some of the Gil Evans Orchestra, recorded live in New York City, April 2, 1959.

"So What," one of the best known examples of modal jazz, was released on Miles' landmark album "Kind of Blue" on August 17, 1959. The album remains the bestselling jazz album of all time.

John Coltrane, legendary saxophonist and composer, in a quiet mood, listening while Miles Davis plays in the background. These two musical geniuses created some of the most influential music in the twentieth century.
