Virtually all serious and even casual music lovers ought to be familiar with, or at least are likely to have heard The Dave Brubeck Quartet, even without realizing it — for the quartet’s best-known hit “Take Five” has graced the soundtracks of multiple films, including “Mighty Aphrodite,” “Pleasantville” and “Constantine.”
The piece is famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody, as well as its use of unusual 5/4 time — so distinctive, it’s a rare jazz track that became a pop hit.
Including the monster hit “Take Five,” the Brubeck Quartet’s Time Out is a jazz and audiophile classic. Every album collection needs a copy. And now, cut at 33 1/3 RPM on 200-gram premium vinyl, pressed at Quality Record Pressings (Acoustic Sounds’ own industry-lauded LP manufacturer), Analogue Productions brings you Time Out renewed.
Like its 45 RPM sibling, Time Out is presented here packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket. Inside are eight fantastic black and white images shot during the recording session at Columbia’s famous 30th Street Studios. Sony Music supplied the images for use in our SACD reissue, and gave us persmission to use them in our LP reissue as well.
The jacket is also special — very heavy-duty. It’s produced for us by Stoughton Printing featuring a printed wrap mounted to a heavyweight chipboard shell, producing an authentic “old school” look and feel. This jacket is a beauty! Never has Time Out‘s colorful iconic cover art looked so vibrant.
Time Out peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard pop albums chart and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. “Take Five” became a mainstream hit, reaching No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 5 on Billboard‘s Easy Listening survey, the precursor to today’s Adult Contemporary charts. The song was included in countless movies and television soundtracks and still receives significant radio play.
