House of Representatives Honors Kind of Blue

miles-daviskindof-blue Normally entangled in one debacle or another, the House of Representatives took a pause today from trying to burn the country to the ground and come together to vote on an issue everyone can agree on – regardless of political or musical persuasion.

Fifty years after Miles Davis recorded Kind of Blue, the House voted Tuesday to honor the iconic album’s contribution to the genre.

Rep. John Conyers, a Michigan Democrat who sponsored the measure, said the group “made musical history and changed the artistic landscape of this country and in some ways the world.” The resolution recognizing the album’s 50th anniversary passed on a 409-0 vote.

The resolution is H.Res.894.
