From a Jazz Newbie,
This review is from: Take Five - HD Digital Re-Mastered (MP3 Download)
Prior to this record the only jazz I found myself listening to was either on iPlayer (Radio 3) or jazz tracks scattered on movie soundtracks.
By chance I heard Timeout by the late Dave Brubeck over Christmas and thought I would give him a go. Having listened to the record for the past two hours I can only say this: it's the best record I own and I own many.
Basically it ticks all the right boxes: subtle, intelligent, very uplifting, relaxing and stimulating. Now I own a voluminous classical and rock and roll collection but nothing uplifts me more than this record.
It sounds great too - the remaster must be a very good one, it sounds like it was all recorded yesterday. A delight to my ears and extremely soulful.
My only minor gripe is that the comedown from having to turn the music off is a bit harsh - this is truly the album I want as my life soundtrack.
Best buy in a long time
