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.

What a stunning CD! Dave Brubeck was a musician with unique talent - what style! And a fabulous band complementing his playing.

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!

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.

OK, great music, no argument - BUT avoid this vinyl pressing if you're playing it on anything better than a basic old Dansette. I should have realised that it seemed a bit cheap but it turns out to have been pressed as a 'picture disc' ( always a tiresome novelty) and as soon as the stylus reaches the 'picture' after the run-in there is a constant ' swishing' surface noise right through to the end of the side - on both sides. It sounds as if the rough surface of the paper carrying the picture has been transferred to the thin vinyl layer on top carrying the grooves. Having returned it, I will now try to find the proper Columbia LP re-issue or even an original LP. More expensive but it can only be better than this poor product.

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.
