Offered for sale is a scarce Japanese 2 LP set by the Modern Jazz Quartet, Concert in Japan ’66 released only in Japan.
About this copy: The discs, cover and obi are all M-. There is no insert, though there may not have been one originally.
A beautiful copy of a seldom-seen album.
Background: This live album by the Modern Jazz Quartet was recorded in Tokyo on March 14, 1966. For whatever reason, it wasn’t released until much later, and even then, only in Japan. We’re not sure of the release date, but we suspect this album was issued in the mid-1970s. This pressing is mono, and appears to be the first (and perhaps, only) issue of the album, as the catalog number in the dead wax matches the one on the cover and obi and the discs have A1/A2/A1/A2 stampers.
