Jazz: The 59 Sound 2

Posted by Podmaster On June - 10 - 2009ADD COMMENTS

In 1959, Jazz musicians and fans were both ready for changes beyond the bebop sound that had been popular since the mid 1940s.   Unfortunately, there was some resistance at the record companies responsible for bringing the new music to the marketplace.  Eventually, the labels were happy their artists like Dave Brubeck persisted, once “Take Five” became the biggest selling jazz single of all time.

Ben Ratliff, Dave Brubeck and Brubeck’s manager Russell Gloyd recall what was different about Time Out.
