    No worries! I have a similar feel to Hutcherson’s happenings :(

    I'm the same way with Out to Lunch. I like parts of it, but it hasn't connected for me as a whole. It and Bud Powell are the only two MM 33's I don't own. :hide:

    Evolution, on the other hand, is in my top 10 for sure. The combination of Moncur and Hutcherson create a cerebral-like connection for me. McLean's sharpness can be trying but his arrangements are brilliant, IMO.

    I don't care for Out to Lunch either. I just don't dig the beatnik style. It's not my thing.

    I really like Out To Lunch. I suppose Evolution will connect with me one day, but it just hasn’t happened.

    McLean is such a brilliant, brilliant player, but I sometimes feel by the mid 60’s he was pushing the “sharpness” thing over a cliff. He already had such a unique sound by playing just a bit sharp, but he really went further with it. Even on his own records like One Step Beyond and Right Now, they are just incredible albums, but man he was really pushing the envelope of tonality. I hear it as kind of “eastern” and it works in that context, but honestly if you gave me his tone on Swing Swang Swingin’ on those albums I would not complain.

    I have the 1983 King pressing of Baker's, Pretty Groovy on the way from Japan. That would be a good choice for reissue.

    So, if I am getting 0 response from Carol, is there another email to address QC issues? I have not gotten a response in a week.

    Did you send a 2nd request email yet? Sometimes one can slip by in all the shuffle....

    The best email is actually but it just goes to carol... if she hasn't responded in a week it probably means she missed it, she's pretty on top of the email as far as I can tell. If you've already nudged her with a reminder email, you can PM me your details and I'll make sure she pulls it up.

    Has anyone compared Us Three 33 vs 45? I remember someone commenting that the 45 sounded much flatter and less dynamic than the 33. I wanted to see if that was the consensus. Thank you!

    I, too, am wondering this and I also remember the, what I believe was a single, comment.

    Does anybody know if prints of the pictures inside the gate folds are available to purchase anywhere?

    Too bad they're not repressing these for Blue Note's 80th anniversary...

    Yowza! $150 for a 7.5”x7.5” print?! That’s nuts! I get a 12”x12” on the inside of the jacket. I guess I’d be better off buying a MM release and cutting it in half to frame that. A third the cost, much larger, and I get some music!

    They’re not cheap.

    But really they are not presumably comparable to cutting cardboard which came off a printing press.

    They are printed on acid free rag paper with archival pigment inks. I’ve got a few photographs I’ve purchase and $150 is not crazy at all and while I’m not sure who’s printing them, I can just about guarantee if they were side by side there wouldn’t be a contest.

    Somewhere on a photography site people are scoffing at those who buy $60 records when their Apple TV sounds magical with Amazon prime music ;)

    Fair enough. I’ve updated my avatar to the photo I wanted in the mean time ;)

    I understand better printing and stock, but for a 7.5” image? That seems way small for that price point. And the quality on the MMs isn’t shabby - any place I can buy the same quality that’s in the jacket for a better price?

    Mosaic owns the images. If you want a (legal) print, you gotta buy from them.

    Just ordered another five MM45 titles. All are numbered copies from Elusive Disc at $49.99 except Grant Green at $59.99. This brings me to 65 MM titles in total. Am I halfway there yet?

    • Sam Rivers - Fuchsia Swing Song
    • Elvin Jones - Genesis
    • Horace Parlan - Happy Frame Of Mind
    • Lee Morgan - Vol. 3
    • Grant Green - Talkin' About!

    Elusive has Fuchsia at $50? That’s a great deal

    I don't see Fuschia Swing Song listed on Elusive. Link?

    65 titles! At approx. 35 minutes of music per title, you have 38 hours of listening there. Get on it!

    Don't be so naive to what original art photography can cost.
    Galleries sell Francis Wolff prints for closer to $1,000.

    I think what you want is a book to cut out some images:
