I've been looking for this on CD for about 2 years, but every option has always been from overseas, and about double or triple what I wanted to pay (factoring in shipping).  It comes up from time to time on eBay, but nearly always only on LP.

The two (actually three) CD variants have either of the first two covers above, and it seems "Toshiko And Modern Jazz" has rearranged the order of the tracks (but they are all there) -- so I guess I don't have any particular preference.  Here's the first one from discogs (just once on CD, seems to be from 1998 out of Spain, if I'm seeing right blowing up the back cover)...

And this second discogs listing actually has the third (LP-only) cover variation as the master listing -- called "Japan Jazz All Stars ‎– From Japan With Jazz" -- but this is where all the "Toshiko And Modern Jazz" listings are at (twice on CD, in 1987 and 2010, both out of Japan)...

I don't suppose anyone here happens to have a copy they could offer?? I've got quite a pile of trade-bate I could pony up.  Or leads to something halfway affordable would be most appreciated.

 

I've never heard the entire album, but what I'm especially after is the big band version of the Charlie Mariano tune "Santa Barbara" -- from another Japanese album also recorded in 1964 (with Mariano and otherwise all Japanese musicians), called Jazz-Intersession (with no single leader listed, nor a name it was released under).  It's a crackin' tune that just won't quit, with twists and turns aplenty!!  I started a whole thread about this album when I first got it...

 

Here's the version of "Santa Barbara" from Jazz-Intersession...

I've never seen it on CD, but I have it on LP and it's super. 

Inter-Session is great as well.
