7 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Pianist Dave Brubeck was one of the biggest things to hit jazz since Charlie Parker, with a large crossover audience cultivated during tours of colleges. One of jazz’s most popular albums ever, this tour de force is anchored by Paul Desmond’s “Take Five” (in swinging 5/4 time) and the electrifying “Blue Rondo À la Turk,” which fuses dazzling classical chops and an assured sense of swing with Turkish folk music. Never has jazz seen a better meeting of accessible melody and sophisticated musical ideas.

One of the Best Albums EVER!

A true masterpiece -- so good that it's still popular over 50 years after it was first released. I remember the day my father brought the record home, sometime in the early 60's. We both loved it! Dad's gone now, but the album and my memories of our both enjoying the record so much live on.

Time Out

I first heard this album as a HS senior in 1962. Went to Brubeck concerts at college. Heard him in Greenwich Village. Time Out is timeless.

A must have for Jazz lovers

This is one of the greatest albums in jazz. It is a classic; if you like jazz this is one that is a must have. I have had this for over 20 years. And I still listen to something on this album regularly. I have several of Brubeck's albums and this one is by far may favorite. Take Five is my favorite of this album; and one of my favorite jazz pieces of all.
