Time Further Out continues the Dave Brubeck Quartet's exploration of unusual time signatures that began on their 1959 album Time Out. The tracks are ordered by the number of beats per bar, starting with "It's a Raggy Waltz" and "Bluette" in 3/4, "Charles Matthew Hallelujah" in 4/4, "Far More Blue" and "Far More Drums" in 5/4, "Maori Blues" in 6/4, "Unsquare Dance" in 7/4, "Bru's Boogie Woogie" in 8/8, and concluding with "Blue Shadows in the Street" in 9/8. Like the original Time Out album, Time Further Out's cover features a work of modern art: a painting by Spanish artist Joan Miro.

"The album is an absolute delight that keeps surprising as it unfolds into tracks such as "Far More Drums," "Maori Blues," and the Mingus-like human percussion heard in "Unsquare Dance." Impex's reissue is excellent... Great stuff." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, Janaury 2011, Issue 209

Mixed feelings

OK,this is great music, what else can you expect from the quartet? Regarding this Impex issue I am not so Impressed however. Drum is excellent, piano, saxophone is OK, but double bass is a bit too heavy for me, so as the overall volume level which is too loud compared to other discs. I like side "A" but on side "B" the piano is sometimes distorted. I am sorry but it just cannot compete with Analogue Productions' Time Out on 200 gr,45 RPM LP.

Great Music, Great Sound

I grew up with Time Out, but the music on "Further Out" is just as fine if not better. This is a great recording of an interesting concept: re-drawing Miro with music. Buy it!

When I was in my teens I used toget together with some friends and listen to Classical Music. Our favorite was Beethoven's Ninth and when we played it we always left it for last, we used to say "if we play it first, what would we listen to afterwards"? Well I'm going to say something blasfemous; I like this record a little better than "Time Out" and after playing it I was left with that old feeling, what can I play after this? The performance is excellent and the sound is fabulous. Buy this record, if you like Brubeck this is a must. Joe Morello is outstanding and Desmond shines. Wow!!
