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

As hard as it is to live up to the hype, "Time Out", like Miles's "Kind of Blue" or Cannonball Adderley's "Something Else" is a real 24 carat masterpiece. The stand-out track of course, is Paul Desmond's marvellous "Take Five" which, with its wonderful meandering wistfulness, once heard can never be forgotten. Yet all the tracks, with their various time signatures, swing hard and leave you feeling happy and relaxed. The quartet made many other great recordings but for impact and longevity this one takes some beating.

When I heard that Sony remastered this CD, I immediately grabbed myself a copy. Dave Brubeck's "Time Out" isn't just a great album; it also gives me fond childhood memories from when I first listened to this recording as a toddler. At the risk of recycling a cliche, it's one of those vital albums that transcends musical boundaries, and it's accessible to the masses while also remaining cutting edge. Producer Teo Macero, who is also responsible for some of Miles Davis' most essential recordings, brings out the very best in each of the players on this record. In my opinion, the very heart of this 1959 release is the exceptional "Take Five." The dynamic interaction between Brubeck's piano and Paul Desmond's expressive saxophone makes this one of the most unforgettable and powerful pieces of jazz ever played on a vinyl record. Other album cuts like "Three to Get Ready" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk" are timeless pieces that are so effortlessly graceful they seem to walk on water. Along with Miles' "Kind of Blue" and Coltrane's "A Love Supreme," Brubeck's "Time Out" is one of THE essential jazz recordings to own. It's a 100% risk-free purchase; even more so with the newly repackaged and remastered edition. But don't just take my word for it. "Time Out" is an experience that has to be heard to be believed.

Dave Brubeck was in Houston for a concert last night, and we were listening to this album on the way there. A classic album, a classic artist. Though there was no Paul Desmond at the concert, it was fantastic to finally get to hear Dave in person.

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".

I dont pretend to fully grasp the various time signatures, and as such neither do i give pay much heed to the value of this record as Mr Brubeck and his bandmates' exercise in extreme muso ramblings. What matters is: The whole thing just swings. From start to finish, this is jazz that will make you tap your toes and hum along at the same time, and all too often in my relatively limited jazz experience, either a good rythmn or a catchy melody seems forsaken for the other. Joe Morello's drums and Gene Wright's bass keep the whole thing rolling without ever dominating Paul Desmond's sax, almost flute-like in the warmth of it's tone, or Brubeck's often understated piano. Time Out sounds to me like the soundtrack to a Woody Allen film, and makes me want to wear thick black rimmed glasses. Yet this time thats not a bad thing.......

Vintage Brubeck piano with Paul Desmond on alto sax giving that rounded quality that is what we expect. The extra DVD with DaveBrubeck at 90years old showing the technical detail and the rapport between the members of the group, gives a unique incite into this music that makes the package excellent value for money.

This is a classic Jazz album and the music scores 5*. However this version from 1992 (with Columbia Jazz Maserpieces logo) is not great. The sound is dull and muffled. Get the later re-master on the Legacy label, it's so much better sounding.

By D. Elliott TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 May 2010
Format: Audio CD
American jazz pianist Dave Brubeck was responsible for the original 1959 `Time Out' album - a richly deserved platinum recording. What became one of the biggest ever selling modern jazz albums started as an experiment - and it received a number of negative reviews at the time. This CD contains all 7 famous-to-be numbers by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, where all were composed by Brubeck except the now classic `Take Five' by saxophonist Paul Desmond - who originally intended it to be a drum solo for Joe Morello. The fourth member making up the ground breaking Quartet was double bassist Eugene Wright - he is an African-American and at the time in 1959 with `segregation' this created difficulties for what was an `integrated' band. Brubeck employed unusual time signatures or number of beats to the bar, where probably the best known is `Take Five' in 5/4 time. On this CD very little is played in common time. `Blue Rondo à la Turk' is in 9/8 time, `Everybody's Jumpin' and `Pick Up Sticks in 6/4 time, `Three To Get Ready' in alternate 3/4 and 4/4 time, but both `Strange Meadow Lark' and `Kathy's Waltz' are largely in 4/4. However listeners should not be so distracted as to count the unusual time signatures - all they need do is relax to what is easy, wistful and haunting music - especially Brubeck's rhythmic piano and Desmond's lyrical alto-sax. If you're going to only own one Dave Brubeck CD - make it this one!
