Brubeck, Dave – Time Out – Vinyl LP 180gr + 7inch
The Dave Brubeck Quartet – Time Out – Vinyl LP 180gr Stereo + Colored Blue Vinyl 7inch Single Collector’s Edition
Vinyl LP 180gr + Rare 7inch EP on Blue Vinyl.
An exclusive collector’s re-release of the hit album Time Out with a very rare 1962 EP packaged inside featuring Carmen McRae singing along with the Dave Brubeck Trio. Two titles from Time Out album “It’s a Raggy Waltz” and “Take Five”, plus the quartet instrumental “Tonight Only”.
Dave Brubeck’s TIME OUT ranks alongside Miles Davis’ KIND OF BLUE as one of the few advanced jazz masterpieces to achieve great commercial success. In fact, the widespread popularity of TIME OUT, with its cool-toned ambience, smooth style, and elements borrowed from classical music, helped make modern jazz a mainstream phenomenon.
The ubiquitous “Take Five” may be overplayed, but that doesn’t diminish the joy of its complex melodic hooks, it’s perfectly executed solos, or the swinging slink of its 5/4 signature. “Blue Rondo a la Turk” collages Mozart, cool swing, and Brubeck’s own classically oriented piano style, and the airy, delicate “Everybody’s Jumpin’ ” showcases the lyrical splendor of saxophonist Paul Desmond. With bassist Gene Wright and drummer Joe Morello keeping the tricky rhythms agile and swift, the Dave Brubeck Quartet blended complexity and accessibility for pure jazz pleasure on TIME OUT, an album everyone should own.
