      I bought one disk, but that's it for me from this series. IMO, there are other companies putting out just as good, if not better pressings for a much more reasonable cost. Just my experience.

        Musically (can't speak for the audio or pressing quality of the new MoFI release) Portrait in Jazz is as good as it gets. A musical milestone. It has been somewhat ignored due to the popularity of Live at the Village Vanguard. But Portrait is the height of the trio's collective work and the improvisation by both Evans and LaFaro has never been surpassed. Listen to Autumn Leaves or What Is This Things Called Love and you'll never hear Evans improvise better. Stunning music and one of the first times a trio played as an equal unit rather than the bass and drums just being backup. An expert apprenticed me in jazz in 1963 and this was one of the key albums he made me listen to some 10 times over and over. I bought this MoFI version despite the expense and my lack of vinyl know-how. I hope to hear it soon. Update. Received my MoFI copy of Portrait today and both disks are nearly perfectly flat. I love the music. Can't comment on sound quality against other sources as don't know. But sounds like a high quality studio recording.

            Myles,
            MusicDirect does not advertise the UD1S releases. You have to call them and ask the sales person to order it. I call MusicDirect every month and ask about what is available or about to be available. I have not been able to find a better way yet.

            Also...the UD1S orders do not show up under you account in the MusicDirect website. The UD1S orders are maintained in a different list that is off line.

            Portrait in Jazz? I ordered it yesterday. Weird.

          Seems bizarrely difficult to pre-order these. Once available they do end up on the music direct site:

          interesting that one hasn’t sold out even after being available for a while...

          Some info from MD.

          "The full run has been pressed, but there are still batches being packaged. All copies should arrive by the end of the month."
