"There are recordings in music that become crown jewels. Miles Davis's "So What" is one such recording. Gia Jade and Miss B have embraced this classic and added a totally new dimension to hearing it again, a dimension that brings young ears to the beauty of the music.. Take a moment to listen to these young artists love Jazz, love Jazz so much that the had to be a part of its future. Mile's "Kind Of Blue" album is prized in my personal collection as one of my favourite of all time and I welcome this interpretation as a kiss of appreciation. Recommended by Kings.."
