Kind of Borrowed, Kind of Blue
In late 2014, the jazz combo Mostly Other People Do the Killing released Blue—an album that is a note‐for‐note remake of Miles Davis's 1959 landmark album Kind of Blue. This is a thought experiment made concrete, raising metaphysical puzzles familiar from discussion of indiscernible counterparts. It is an actual album, rather than merely a concept, and so poses the aesthetic puzzle of why one would ever actually listen to it.
