I guess it's now or never for me and that MJQ box.  If it were half it's size (4 discs), I'm sure I would have bough it by now.  I keep asking myself, do I really need -- what is it? -- something like 14 albums of MJQ?

I suppose I do, but will I really listen to them all THAT much?  I only have Pyramid (on LP), and have been meaning to pick up a copy of Lonely Woman for years (but I just never get around to it).

Maybe I'll mull this over some more this weekend, and sample some stuff from YouTube (surely a ton is uploaded there).

I’m asking myself the same question about the Jamal set. I have a few, not many of his CDs, and I feel that’s enough. I just don’t need 9 more CDs. Moreover, as I noted earlier, you can’t buy everything.

I need to dig out my copy of the MJQ Mosaic set, not spun it for a while - sound is excellent and to be honest I’ve been preferring it over the few MJQ Atlantics I have on vinyl. Recommended.

That's an odd selection of MJQ LPs in the Original Album series. The box ist very good, and much more entertaining to listen to than you might think. Once it's gone ...

Once it’s gone, it’s gone but it’s not the end of the world.

I don't regret buying the MJQ box.  Perhaps not the most exciting approach to jazz, but there's a lot of substance to their playing.  The Jamal on the other hand... I kinda think this suffices:
