In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of Time Out, QSF pays tribute to the mastery of Brubeck with the first-ever all Brubeck string quartet CD!

Among the most intriguing tracks are the tense, train-like interpretation of The Golden Horn (premiered by Brubeck on Jazz Impressions of Eurasia) and the mournful Bluette. The band masters the challenging Blue Rondo a la Turk and a wonderful, offbeat arrangement of Paul Desmond's Take Five that suggests a country hoedown at times.
