Dave Brubeck's defining masterpiece Time Out ranks as one of the most popular jazz albums ever made even though its radical exploration of time signatures outside of the standard 4/4 beat or 3/4 waltz was widely disparaged by his record company and critics initially. Basically it shows the blending of three cultures: the formalism of classical Western music, the freedom of jazz improvisation, and the often complex pulse of African folk music.
Featuring the first jazz instrumental to sell a million copies with Paul Desmond's "Take Five," this is the Dave Brubeck Quartet at the height of their popularity and power. Recorded in 1959, the album is overflowing with superb performances by pianist Brubeck, alto saxophonist Desmond, drummer Joe Morrello and bassist Gene Wright. Time Out firmly establishes the Dave Brubeck Quartet outside of the jazz world.
The album cover art is a painting by Neil Fujita, Director of Design and Packaging at Columbia Records from 1954 to 1960.
"Time Out is one of the most rhythmically innovative albums in jazz history, the first to consciously explore time signatures outside of the standard 4/4 beat or 3/4 waltz time. It was a risky move -- Brubeck's record company wasn't keen on releasing such an arty project, and many critics initially roasted him for tampering with jazz's rhythmic foundation. But for once, public taste was more advanced than that of the critics. Buoyed by a hit single in altoist Paul Desmond's ubiquitous 'Take Five,' Time Out became an unexpectedly huge success, and still ranks as one of the most popular jazz albums ever... This belongs in even the most rudimentary jazz collection." — AllMusic.com
