"Time Out"

Friday, August 4
7:30 p.m.

ABOUT THIS EVENT


1959 was a watershed year for “Cool Jazz”. “Time Out,” considered a cool jazz album, was released in ‘59 and had the 1st million-seller in jazz, with the single “Take Five”. Every song is a gem and a Brubeck original except Take Five, which is by Paul Desmond, Dave Brubeck Quartet’s alto saxophonist. He compared his sound to a dry martini. We are presenting a live performance of this iconic recording featuring all the tracks.
