THis is a great way to ease into jazz music.

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.

Two discs 38 and 54 minutes each approximately. The sound is immediate with good separation between the piano,which is crisp,the alto sax which is light and airy,and the rhythm section,which has a good deep end to it's sound. The booklet has a number of photographs of the band and gives the background on this (at the time) monumental release. The DVD is approximately 30 minutes in length,on the making of the album,interview with Brubeck and other footage.

Anyone with even a passing interest in jazz will have heard either "Take Five",or this entire album. It's certainly one of the best selling albums in the jazz field,and shows no indication of slowing down anytime soon.

What makes this release something to purchase is the entire second cd,which is THE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET LIVE AT NEWPORT,1961,1963 and 1964,with the same personnel who played on the original studio album. This disc contains the usual "hits" then popular from this group,along with several other tracks. Live this group sounds a bit more alive,and not quite as academic as they sometimes tend to sound on studio recordings. Live,this music will put a smile on your face and set your foot to tapping. And that's what this album is all about-great jazz played with style and fine musicianship,yet it still has that cool,yet "good-time" feel. This album so caught the public's attention,because of a couple of popular tunes,that much of the sophisticated arranging and playing was missed by listeners. At the time the rhythm patterns in most of the compositions were very advanced-not many had played jazz in the time signatures that Brubeck and his group did on this album. For those who like this album,the extra disc is certainly worth owning. Not only will you have one of the best,most popular jazz albums of all time,you'll also have some very fine live jazz,which makes this release the one to own.

"Time Out" is by far my favorite jazz album of all time. I never get tired of hearing it. It would definitely make my list of desert island discs. I also dig the painting which serves as the album cover. The superb pianist Dave Brubeck is the nominal leader of the group, frantically kicking off the opening classic track "Blue Rondo A La Turk." Drummer Joe Morello amazingly keeps perfect time during all of the tempo shifts. He particularly shines on the appropriately named tune "Pick Up Sticks." Saxophonist Paul Desmond takes center stage on the most famous track of all, "Take Five." This song has rightfully taken its place among the greatest instrumentals of all time. Rounding out the quartet, Eugene Wright's bass deftly anchors the beat on the melodic "Kathy's Waltz." The song "Everybody's Jumpin'" would be right at home on an album of sophisticated swing music. I'm no jazz expert who can expound on exotic time signatures, but I know what I like. I love "Time Out" by the Dave Brubeck Quartet!

I work in the seafood business. We have a saying in the indrustry that states: " Shrimp is the seafood for people who don't like fish." Dave Brubeck's "Time Out" is the shrimp of jazz. From the booming intensity of "Blue Rondo A La Turk" to the melodic sweetness of "Strange Meadow Lark," one cannot even tell that the album is an exercise in unusual time signatures. But it is. Most jazz is in "common" or 4/4 time, which means four beats to a measure. "Time Out" explores alternative time signatures such as 5/4, "Take Five", 9/8, "Blue Rondo A La Turk", and 6/4, "Pick Up Sticks". I was exposed to this album by my father, who played it more than any other album he had; he had a collection of more than 1000 records,including Garner, Getz, Waller, Goodman, Kenton, Jamal, and of course, every Brubeck "album" (we don't call them those anymore, do we?) available at the time. For a first time jazz listener, I would recommend this recording highly. The piano, bass, saxophone, and drums work together in a way that only Brubeck has been able to orchestrate. Joe Morello's drum solo in "Take Five" is the best since Gene Krupa in Benny Goodman's "Sing, Sing, Sing". Morello tunes his drums to approximate the notes of the melody. Paul Desmond's sax is at its playful best. His work on "Strange Meadow Lark" is both wistful and sexy. "Take Five", his own composition, was the first jazz record ever to sell a million copies. Listen carefully to Gene Wright's bass lines. Like a compass, they guide us through the treacherous terrains of Brubeck's bombastic blasts and Desmond's delightful designs. All in all, the best, most accessible jazz album ever. '
