USA, 1961, cool jazz

The Dave Brubeck QuartetTime Further Out: Something interesting I didn’t know about this album until I looked up information about it online is that the tracks are ordered in increasing number of beats per bar, so the first two songs are 3/4, and then the beats go from 4/4 to 5/4, 6/4, 7/4 etc. on the subsequent tracks. One of those cool little curiosities, and relevant since the band is continuing to experiment and play around with uncommon time signatures, something they had started doing two years previous on Time Out.
