Overview

The Dave Brubeck Quartet�s 1959 album Time Out changed the sound of jazz and American music.

This folio celebrates the album�s 50th anniversary with full-color artwork from the original record, and a 10 page write-up from jazz historian Ted Gioia. All seven compositions from the monumental recording have been carefully arranged for Easy Piano.
