Kind of Blue T shirt by Daniel Davidson

£ 39.00

1959 must rank as the annus mirabilis of jazz. Probably the largest selling jazz album of all time, Kind of Blue was recorded in two sessions on March 2 and April 22 at the Columbia Records' 30th Street Studio New York. Essentially these were live sessions that happened to be in a studio. 57 years later the performance still sounds fresh and spontaneous. These were not the only ground breaking moments in that studio in that year. Among others consider Dave Brubeck's Take 5 and Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz to Come

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.
