No insert is included; this LP may not have originally included one.

The disc is VG++ (and very close to M-) on side 1.  Side two is VG+, with a few faint scuffs.

A very clean copy of an LP that is rarely found complete.  Pretty good record, too!

Background: Released in 1960, Third Stream Music was the 18th album by the Modern Jazz Quartet.

This LP featured the Jimmy Giuffre 3 in addition to the four members of the MJQ. gave Third Stream Music a 4 1/2 star review:

This Atlantic release has some unusual performances by the Modern Jazz Quartet. Two selections (“Da Capo” and “Fine”) combine the MJQ, which is comprised of vibraphonist Milt Jackson, pianist John Lewis, bassist Percy Heath, and drummer Connie Kay, with the Jimmy Giuffre 3 (Giuffre on clarinet and tenor, with guitarist Jim Hall and bassist Ralph Pena) on “Exposure”; six chamber classical musicians add color, and a pair of other numbers (“Conversation” and the very successful “Sketch”) match the MJQ with the Beaux Arts String Quartet. There is plenty of thought-provoking music on this disc even if the idea of creating a third stream between jazz and classical music never came to pass.
