Time OutTakes features tracks that have never been heard before. These newly discovered recordings feature wonderful performances that are every bit as compelling as those on the original Time Out. We discovered that during the original 1959 sessions the Quartet also recorded “I’m In a Dancing Mood” and an unlisted trio jam with a major drum solo that included snatches of the melody from “Watusi Drums.” Two tracks from Time Out, “Pick Up Sticks” and “Everybody’s Jumpin, ” were achieved in one take so no alternates exist to include here.
Once the Dave Brubeck Quartet released Time Out in 1959, the world of jazz was never the same. Every note of the seven original compositions soared with wild originality and trained musical genius. “Take Five” became the best-selling jazz single of the twentieth century. All listeners of Time OutTakes will experience the Cold War era jazz revolution as it unfolded.
