Monday Night at 8pm: THE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET - Time Out

Dec 10, 2012

One of the vanguards of progressive jazz, pianist Dave Brubeck died Wednesday, just one day short of his 92nd birthday.  WNCW salutes this legend with his landmark 1959 release "Time Out" for your Spindale Cycle Monday night.  Inspired by a recent U.S. State Department sponsored trip to Eurasia, this album features non-Western time signatures as a theme, including Turkish-inspired 9/8 time, and their signature 5/4 hit, "Take 5".
