When the world first discovered the inspirational music of the Dave Brubeck Quartet it was largely thanks to the sound of Take Five, a huge international hit record in 1961. The haunting sound of Paul Desmond’s Alto Saxophone, Brubeck’s rhapsodic Piano, the warm tones of Eugene Wright’s Double Bass and Joe Morello’s dynamic drumming became firmly fixed in the public’s mind as the definitive version of this classic group. Experiments with different time signatures and classical themes blended with swinging Jazz improvisation made them ‘One of America’s all-time most popular Jazz groups’ as Billboard magazine proclaimed. It wasn’t just the success of Desmond’s composition Take Five, which reached Number 6 in the UK Charts, that made them so appealing. Big selling albums like Time Out (1959) signaled a global breakthrough with its intriguing arrangements played in different time signatures. Ever wish you could have sat up front in a crowded Jazz club listening to Brubeck and Desmond blowing red hot and cool? Well now you pretty much can, thanks to this now highly prized album, the ultimate time capsule.
