Time Out, Dave Brubeck Quartet. Less is maybe more on vinyl!
Review by confirmed purchaser
The rather beautiful and lavish Legacy, cd and dvd, reissue of this monster album is invaluable for the historical recollections of the man himself. He explains the way in which he will incorporate everyday, natural sound, that underpinning aural accompaniment to living which is so often overlooked, into the rhythm and syncopation of his compositions. This 180gram, audiophile, vinyl pressing, however, innocent of any extra padding, remains an uncluttered jazz jewel, amongst many such gems of the genre which were released in 1959. Neatly sealed in a clear outer sleeve the artwork regains its original impact. The merest, seductive hint of stylus hiss between individual tracks carries me back to a more noble, infinitely cooler world where simple pleasures were more wholesome and quantity didn't immediately equate with quality. 40 minutes of pure listening enjoyment cleverly encapsulated over two sides of shiny, black plastic, delivered to my door by return of post from Juno Records. Impressive service!
