One of my all-time favorite Brubeck recordings -- a live performance with the Dave Brubeck Quartet doing an extended version of one of his greatest hits.
Alto sax player Paul Desmond displays his witty brilliance on an extended blues solo, and Drummer Joe Morello turns in an amazing performance.

My favorite as well. Just posted it on Facebook for my kids as they got to hear that album almost every day.
When I was a kid of 19 living in Copenhagen in 1961 I went to the American Embassy Library and checked out "Time Out" repeatedly.
Also the fun part of getting the "Voice of America" hosted by Willis Conover was that the Soviets blocked every program. But at precisely at 10:00 pm VOA Jazz Hour came on. All blocking ended and the jazz came in clearly. I think Jazz played a huge role for freedom.

Thank you for that song. I have saved it.
