Dave Brubeck was one of the most active and popular musicians in both the jazz and classical worlds. With a career that spanned over six decades, his experiments in odd time signatures, improvised counterpoint, polyrhythm and polytonality remain hallmarks of innovation.

Born into a musical family in Concord, California-- his two older brothers were also professional musicians--he began ... Read more in Amazon's Dave Brubeck Store

This is a brilliant boxed set of CD's, and I can't really add to the reviews that you can find on

However, I would not recommend buying this box set through, unless they decide to stock it themselves.

I ordered the set at a relatively high price from a Marketplace seller that claimed "In stock. Dispatched from United Kingdom.".
They actually shipped from Germany and then delivered the wrong item (just the 'Time In' CD, not the boxed set).
I returned it and ordered from instead (using my Amazon UK username/password) and this cost me less and arrived just as quickly as the item shipped from Germany. The seller was

Take 5! - the Brubeck Quartet's five great 'Time' Pieces 14 Mar. 2004
By Steven Kosakowski - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Columbia/Sony have finally completed the remastered re-rollout of all five Brubeck Quartet 'TIME' albums (each with extra tracks), and collected them here in a budget-priced box set.
The box in this case is simply a very sturdy slipcase holding the five individualy available jewel-cased cd's. Three of the albums, as detailed in another review here, have not been available for years, so this collection is a great and inexpensive way to sweep them all up at once.
For the record, the five albums are:
1 - TIME Out (1959), including the classic Desmond/Brubeck cut 'Take Five';
2 - TIME Further Out (1961) with 1 bonus track from the sessions plus a live 'Raggy Waltz' from the '63 Carnegie Hall shows;
3 - Countdown TIME in Outer Space (1961) with 1 bonus track;
4 - TIME Changes (1963-64) including the orchestral 'Elementals';
5 - TIME In (1965) with 3 bonus tracks, and the last of the Brubeck Quartet's 'time signature' albums.
Not included (though well worth picking up) is the 1954 'Brubeck Time', as its titular 'Time' refers to the news magazine's 1954 cover story on Brubeck and jazz rather than to the experiments in time signatures cut by the complete classic quartet.
Anyone enjoying this Time Box should also take a good hard look at Paul Desmond's 'Complete RCA' Box of his solo work for that label from '61-'65, including his reworking of the 'Take Five' theme called 'Take Ten'.

Jazz at its best 24 Oct. 2004
By Tweeedly Eeeedly - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Short review:
This is a superb set. If you love: jazz, Brubeck, any one of the quartet members, superb musicianship, great drumming, great piano jazz, beautiful bass tone, beautiful alto sax tone... then buy this set

Long review:
I came to jazz late and discovered Time Out around 1995. I loved it. Till now I thought that was all there was this quartet produced (I admit I was ignorant). I fell in love with the bold experimentation of this group, and as a bassist myself I was inspired by Eugene Wright's bass sound.

Fast forward to 2004 and lo and behold, I discover this boxed set. My favorite jazz quartet playing with time... it was like discovering "lost" tunes by a favorite band and I couldn't resist purchasing it. Its been several days now and I am thrilled with it.

Several people have commented on the packaging being subpar. This may be true when compared to Columbia's Miles Davis sets which I don't own, but I happen to think the packaging is excellent. In particular I feel there is a unity to this set that must be rare in the history of jazz. Allow me to eloborate: 1) The same band was used for the entire set 2) The same (superb) recording studio was used (the famed NY 30th street), 3) The same exciting experimentation is used throughout the set, 3) The same producer was used (probably the most respected in jazz - Teo Macero), 4) The same engineer was available (and a top notch one at that! - Fred Plaut), 5) The same reissue director was used, 6) All tracks were remastered to greater than a CD's 16-bit sound quality (most are 24bits, the rest are 20... not sure it matters beyond 16bits but suffice it to say that it sound very good!), 7) The compositions are excellent working both as "background music" and music you can listen to in a trance-like state, 8) The CDs all have the same "look" - clear CD cases with original liner notes and additional notes from Brubeck, and 9) the cost is reasonable for 5 CDs.

I was afraid that this was going to be "Time Out" plus filler albums, but I assure you this is NOT the case. Time Out was the first album and not necessarily the best (at the moment I am partial to "Time in Outer Space" and "Time Explorations"). I don't know what else to say, I plan on listening to this for the rest of my life and am grateful that Columbia had the foresight to release this set. Do yourself a favor and buy this boxed set.

Relook time at Mr Brubeck's experiments 5 Oct. 2004
By Ian Muldoon - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I first encountered the Brubeck Quartet I could not get enough of the straight ahead jazz of these four, and did not venture beyond TIME OUT. I missed out on some fine albums as a consequence. This is my first taste of the remainder and these other four are worthy editions to own. Very well recorded, with quite good definition of Mr Wright's bass. Something of a bargain. An excellent companion to Mr Brubeck's own selection of his music on TIME SIGNATURES.

Excellent music for the price! 1 Aug. 2005
By S. Sigel - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Like some others, I own Time Out and was not familiar with all the other albums included in this box set. After reading some of the reviews that were posted here, I took a chance and purchased "For All Time." With the exception of the over-long Elementals, I was pretty impressed with just about every track on this five disc set. I have to say that this is indeed great music for the money and certainly earns a 5 star rating! Whether you are a long time Brubeck fan or just a casual listener of jazz music, this set is really a great buy and highly recommended...

For All jazz Fans 18 Mar. 2005
By J. Thomas - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the HEAT. Everybody has heard or owns TIME OUT and maybe 10% of everybody has heard or owns TIME FURTHER OUT but almost nobody has heard or owns TIME IN OUTER SPACE or the next two titles from this line up. Thes guys were tight, tight and could cook like no others. Impossible time signatures were like flippin' burgers to these cats. Some of the tunes on discs 3-5, you would swear each musician is playing a different song or time/beat and yet it is melodic, musical and 100% enjoyable. I just can't recommend this box set enough.
