Literally on his way to Combat, Brubeck volunteered to play piano on the back of a truck and was taken from there to play for the troops forming one of the very first interracial bands either in or out of the Army.
There was a time when every record collection in the 60s. had "Time Out."
It still plays timelessly today. Seamless and beautiful.
Brilliant! Fun, always fresh and interesting to listen to; includes probably the best jazz song of the century - the immortal 'take five'.
In my opinion, the best Jazz album ever. Yes, the peak of Jazz happened in 1959, and it's been all downhill from there ... (?) ... well, regardless of that claim, this album is monumental, experimental, successful, enjoyable, all top-notch. Everybody likes Dave, but what people remember most is Paul's sax from Take Five. Of course that piece is the centerpiece of this album. Perhaps the best thing to say about "Time Out" is that it's timeless.
The very definition of cool, west coast jazz. Dave Brubeck's style relies heavily on blocky, complex chords and off time signatures like 5/4 time signature of Take Five. The idea for these odd time signatures originated in Turkey with a group of street musicians playing in 9/8 time.
