It's hard for a modern listener to fully appreciate Kind of Blue. So much of the jazz that came after it was influenced by it. When it first came out though, it must have sounded like nothing before it - almost alien.

To your point, even the musicians playing on it were probably not fully aware of the vision of Miles Davis. I have to listen to the whole thing tonight.
