I was in the British Air Force in 1956 and stationed in the desert in Jordan. I was also a keen listener to the Voice of America, especially the Jazz Hour presented by the great Willis Conover. That is where I was introduced to Dave Brubeck and his quartet. In 1956 or '57, I bought the 1956 Newport LP which featured not only Brubeck but also JJ Johnson and & Kai Winding whose feature track was 'Lover'. You can see the disc made an impression on me as I lugged it around the world and played it until it got no longer playable. What really impressed me was 'Two Part Contention' which to my mind is still the most inventive and enjoyable track ever laid down by Brubeck and, while admitting I haven't heard everything he has done, I have have heard and enjoyed a lot. I am actually writing this review before I receive my purchase as I am really excited about hearing it again. I have been longing for the re-issue. It is running through my mind as I write! Hurry up, postman!

The first four tracks on this album are from the album titled Newport and are the only tracks on that album that were performed by the Quartet on July 6, 1956. Note: the other three tracks from that album feature J. J. Johnson and Kai Winding performing during their set. This would be Joe Dodge's last Newport Jazz Festival performance sine he was replaced by Joe Morello four months later. Norman Bates is the bassist for this performance, and, of course Dave Brubeck is on piano and Paul Desmond on alto sax.

Tracks 5 through 8 were recorded three years later on July 5, 1959 at the festival and feature the classic line up with Eugene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums backing Brubeck and Desmond. The difference in the rhythm sections between the two performances is like night and day.

Wrapping the album up are two bonus tracks that was recorded live on February 28, 1958 in Hannover, Germany during their European tour that year. This, too, features the classic Quartet. To the best of my knowledge these tracks do not show up in any other albums. Indeed, they are not listed in the discographies I consult when I an cross-referencing information.

For casual listening this is not what I consider to be an essential album. For avid fans like myself it's enjoyable, and as a drummer I do appreciate the contrast between the Bates/Dodge rhythm section and the Wright/Morello one. While the latter is vastly more technically proficient and key to some of the amazing albums the Quartet would release, the 1956 Quartet was better suited to backing Paul Desmond in my opinion. On the other hand there would never have been Time Out with the older Quartet. Wright and Morello made it possible for Brubeck and Desmond to take the quartet to a whole new level.
