Adderley is out on all takes of "Blue in Green."

One of the three-track machines at this session ran slightly slow; since the original album was mixed from this tape, the issued masters were slightly sharp. This was first corrected for the gold Master Sound CD issue (CK 52861).

All of the items above are included on The Making of Kind of Blue (Kind of Blue KOB-001), Another Tracks of Kind of Blue (Core Collections CC-001), and The Sessions of Blue (Mega Disc Legendary 1959).
