Blue In Green
Kind of Blue
Miles Davis
Bill Evans


"One day at Miles's apartment, he wrote on some manuscript paper the symbols for G-minor and A-augmented. And he said, 'What would you do with that?' I didn't really know, but I went home and wrote 'Blue in Green.'"

- Bill Evans

Kahn, Ashley, "Kind of Blue, The Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece", 2000, p.118. (Quote was taken by Kahn from Hennessey)

The four bar opening was then apparently used by Evans as the intro to "Alone Together" on a Chet Baker session on Dec. 30, 1958.
