If you sincerely wanted to create merely a “thought experiment”, why would you commercially release it?

And if you sincerely want to hip people to Kind of Blue, why not pay your PR firm to promote THE ORIGINAL, instead of spending all that money recording and promoting your creepily soulless imitation?

The reason I find this record so disturbing is that it contains (and brings to their logical conclusion) all the qualities that are most rewarded in our culture today: imitation, gimmickry, and artifice.
