Flamenco Sketches t shirt by Daniel Davidson

£ 39.00

Kind of Blue was recorded in two sessions at The Columbia Records studio in New York on March 2nd and April 22nd1959. Flamenco Sketches, the closing track on the album was one of the two tracks recorded on the 22nd April. I don't get the title or where the Flamenco in the title comes from: who cares or more aptly so what? In the Miles Davis way the band members were briefed with what Davis had in mind but how they got there was going to be a spontaneous and moveable feast. The sessions were recorded on three track tape so there was limited scope for editing. You might say the recording of the album was a live performance in a studio. Pianist Bill Evans and Miles Davis are credited with the composition. Admire Miles Davis and the best of spontaneous improvisation wear our Daniel Davidson admires Flamenco Sketches t shirt.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
