Kind of Bloop: An 8-bit Tribute to Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue"

Remember the old Nintendo games? The Super Mario theme playing while you bounced off turtles and ate mushrooms?

Well, Andy Baio has reconstructed the entirety of Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" album, the best-selling jazz record of all time, in 8-bit glory.

It only costs $5 to buy it digitally. I did and am overwhelmed by the sounds; if you know the album you already know what is coming... but the 8-bit elements just blow you away.

Have a sample at the official Kind of Bloop website and you can read the story of how this came to be over there too.
