Bennett/Brubeck: The White House Sessions, Live 1962


Dave Brubeck was one of the most active and popular musicians in both the jazz and classical worlds. With a career that spanned over six decades, his experiments in odd time signatures, improvised counterpoint, polyrhythm and polytonality remain hallmarks of innovation.

Born into a musical family in Concord, California-- his two older brothers were also professional musicians--he began ... Read more in Amazon's Dave Brubeck Store

Editorial Reviews

A continuation of the musical themes Dave Brubeck had first explored on Time Out, Time Further Out revisits the unusual time signatures, ranging from 5/4 to 9/8. The accompanying musicians include Paul Desmond (saxophone), Joe Morello (drums) and Eugene Wright (bass), with Dave on piano. Time Further Out would prove to be another major success following its release in 1961, hitting #8 on the pop chart, whilst the extracted single Unsquare Dance would also become a minor hit at #74.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great exploration in time January 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is actually a reissue of the cutting edge LP which Brubeck released in the '60's. To those who are not familiar with Brubeck, this CD is a good introduction, as the listener finds Brubeck delving into odd time signatures from the very first track. This exploration of time is characteristic of Brubeck's jazz style. By recording albums such as this, Brubeck made these times more commonplace in jazz. Also included on this disc are two songs that did not appear on the original LP, and one of which was not previously released. These two songs continue to show Brubeck's innovative style. In addition to Brubeck's playing, the other three members of the quartet show that they can also handle playing in such diverse times as 3/4, 5/4, 7/4, 9/8, and 6/4 as well as 4/4 time. Together, the quartet challenges the listener to ask him or herself why these times had not been used in jazz before. This is an essential CD for any serious Brubeck fan, and an excellent album for the jazz enthusiast in general or those just beginning to start their jazz collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy Sequel to 'Time Out!' August 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
As other reviewers have noted, this record is a sequel to the Dave Brubeck Quartet's top-selling "Time Out," which explored jazz in odd time signatures. "Time Further Out" continues that trend, but with a twist; all of these tunes utilize a twelve bar blues progression. The question: "How many different meters can a twelve bar blues be performed in?" The answer: "More than you could possibly imagine!"

The best known tune here is "It's a Raggy Waltz" which is in 3/4 with phrasings that give it a 2/4 feel ([1-2-1]-[2-1-2]-[1-2-3]-[1-2-3]). A few of the other tunes are blues progressions in 3/4 or 6/8 ("Bluette" and "Blue Shadow on Easy Street"). Brubeck also returns to the 5/4 made familiar by "Take Five," in "Far More Blues" and "Far More Drums" - both of which are the same tune, but the latter is a version with an extended and exciting Joe Morello drum solo. We also cover the 7/8 meter {1-2-1-2-1-2-3)in the quirky "Unsquare Dance." Those are just a few favorites.

For those who either aren't entirely versed in jazz or know little about time signatures, do not let that dissuade you from this CD. Brubeck and his quartet make these strange ideas extremely accessible and it has always amazed me at how Brubeck always seems to have one ear concentrating on how to break boundaries while the other is on commerciability. Though Brubeck might write in foreign time signatures (foreign even to many jazz buffs) or solo using strange polyrythms and stranger modes, he makes it sound like the most natural thing in the world. The experienced and unexperienced jazzer can listen and derive untellable satisfaction alike.

That's it. I've said enough. Buy the disc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost and found "far more drums" July 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
My late father was a Jazz pianist and had a tremendous selection of Errol Garner Stan Getz and Count Basie albums in particular. As a boy I wanted to listen to the Beatles or Stones but pocket money didn't allow such luxuries so I had to resort to Dad's "middle aged music" I used to sift through his collection for something I liked and low and behold Brubecks "far more drums" was that track it got played (very Loud) very often and enchanted me but slipped my memory as a favourite until today.Amazon sent me an e-mail about their 5th anniversary special offers and amongst them was a Brubeck album, not "time further out", but the mere mention of Brubeck reminded me and thanks to their massive stocks of old Jazz a quick search found my lost love!the drum solo on this track is unbelievable I can hardly wait to get my hands on it again unfortunately this album has no previews available on it so you will have to take my word for it and buy it too.If you love modern jazz you'll be in Heaven

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe knows solos. July 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Musically this is a fine CD, yet the reason to buy it is for Joe Morello's drum solo on "Far More Drums". Credit genetics and thousands of hours of practice: The guy could swing in odd time signatures like nobody else, including Buddy Rich. Scary stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable as a whole, rather than in its parts... February 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the sequel to the famous "Time Out" LP. None of its tunes are quite as distinctive as "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo" from that album, yet as a 47-minute listening experience, "Time Further Out" is totally enchanting. Slightly odd rhythms, great solos by Paul, Joe, Gene and Dave, happy feeling all through it.This is difficult to find now, but well worth the searching. If you like Brubeck, or Desmond, or just the "Take Five" gem, see if you can get this one in a used auction. This is the kind of jazz disc you can listen to with earphones and get lost in wonder with, then the next week put it on as background while you do work on the computer. I think if you decided to buy only 30 jazz releases from the 50's or 60's, out of the several hundred available by all kinds of guys playing all kinds of instruments in a dozen or more kinds of ensembles, this would deserve to make your list.
