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

It's hard to pick a favorite tune from this album, as they are all wonderful to listen to. "Take Five", the main hit from this album, sounds great on this remastered version, and it sounded amazing as his 85 year old hands tickled the ivories at the concert. Bobby Militello filled in well and amply for Paul Desmond on sax at the performance, by the way.
In addition to "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo A La Turk", I also enjoy "Kathy's Waltz" and "Everybody's Jumpin'", with the Sax lead opening and Dave's piano answering, and the following exchange and counter point.
Also, if you have not heard any of Dave Brubeck's choral arrangements, I would highly recommend them. They were played last night with the Dave Brubeck quartet, the Houston Chamber Choir and a brass section. Simply amazing. You can find them on his albums "The Gates of Justice" and "To Hope".
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.
