Product Description

Amazon.ca

Boasting the first jazz instrumental to sell a million copies, the Paul Desmond-penned "Take Five," Time Out captures the celebrated jazz quartet at the height of both its popularity and its powers. Recorded in 1959, the album combines superb performances by pianist Brubeck, alto saxophonist Desmond, drummer Joe Morrello and bassist Gene Wright. Along with "Take Five," the album features another one of the group's signature compositions, "Blue Rondo a la Turk." Though influenced by the West Coast-cool school, Brubeck's greatest interest and contribution to jazz was the use of irregular meters in composition, which he did with great flair. Much of the band's appeal is due to Desmond, whose airy tone and fluid attack often carried the band's already strong performances to another level. Together, he and Brubeck proved one of the most potent pairings of the era. --Fred Goodman

Product Description

And now for possibly the most popular album in jazz history! Dave contributes to the notes in this hi-fi version; new photos, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defining Masterpiece April 30 2012
By Jerlaw
Format:Audio CD
Dave Brubeck's defining masterpiece, Time Out is one of the most rhythmically innovative albums in jazz history, the first to consciously explore time signatures outside of the standard 4/4 beat or 3/4 waltz time. It was a risky move -- Brubeck's record company wasn't keen on releasing such an arty project, and many critics initially roasted him for tampering with jazz's rhythmic foundation. But for once, public taste was more advanced than that of the critics. Buoyed by a hit single in altoist Paul Desmond's ubiquitous "Take Five," Time Out became an unexpectedly huge success, and still ranks as one of the most popular jazz albums ever. That's a testament to Brubeck and Desmond's abilities as composers, because Time Out is full of challenges both subtle and overt -- it's just that they're not jarring. Brubeck's classic "Blue Rondo à la Turk" blends jazz with classical form and Turkish folk rhythms, while "Take Five," despite its overexposure, really is a masterpiece; listen to how well Desmond's solo phrasing fits the 5/4 meter, and how much Joe Morello's drum solo bends time without getting lost. The other selections are richly melodic as well, and even when the meters are even, the group sets up shifting polyrhythmic counterpoints that nod to African and Eastern musics. Some have come to disdain Time Out as it's become increasingly synonymous with upscale coffeehouse ambience, but as someone once said of Shakespeare, it's really very good in spite of the people who like it. It doesn't just sound sophisticated -- it really is sophisticated music, which lends itself to cerebral appreciation, yet never stops swinging. Countless other musicians built on its pioneering experiments, yet it's amazingly accessible for all its advanced thinking, a rare feat in any art form. This belongs in even the most rudimentary jazz collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brubeck on sublime vinyl! Nov. 16 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
There can be no denying the sticker shock that comes with this sort of product, but having had several good listen-throughs of this Analogue Productions, 200g vinyl pressing of the Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Time Out" album, I can say with confidence that this is a release of outstanding quality both in terms of its actual playback sound quality, as well as the physical LPs and the packaging.

This release was quite brilliantly mastered and cut for vinyl by famed recording engineer Bernie Grundman, using the original analogue studio master tapes. Every aspect of the playback - depth, sound stage, dynamics, sonics, inner detail, everything - is simply astounding and breath-taking. Paul Desmond's sax is wonderfully rendered throughout, the attack of Joe Morello's drumming resounds with unquestioned authority and realism and Eugene Wright's bass line ties everything together. Of course, Dave Brubeck's wonderful piano-playing is moving and magical.

Without exception, this 45-RPM double vinyl LP set is of the very highest quality that I have ever seen. Both of the 200g vinyl discs are absolutely flat with no warping whatsoever. There are no marks or scuffs on these discs at all. Of course, it is the velvety smooth, black silence of the LP lead-in and between tracks that captivates! It attests to the very superior pressing quality and confirms the exceptional value of this product of the Quality Record Pressing plant in Selina, Kansas, USA. The special protective sleeves for these discs and the beautiful glossy finish of the thick cardboard LP gate fold jacket round out the overall product that you receive here.

If you are a serious vinyl LP junkie and have a high performance, audiophile grade turntable and tone arm / cartridge combination (i.e. Rega, Pro-Ject, Thorens, Linn, VPI, SME, Clearaudio, etc.), you will become addicted to this LP set. It is very highly recommended.
