Time Further Out continues the Dave Brubeck Quartet's exploration of unusual time signatures that began on their 1959 album Time Out. The tracks are ordered by the number of beats per bar, starting with "It's a Raggy Waltz" and "Bluette" in 3/4, "Charles Matthew Hallelujah" in 4/4, "Far More Blue" and "Far More Drums" in 5/4, "Maori Blues" in 6/4, "Unsquare Dance" in 7/4, "Bru's Boogie Woogie" in 8/8, and concluding with "Blue Shadows in the Street" in 9/8. Like the original Time Out album, Time Further Out's cover features a work of modern art: a painting by Spanish artist Joan Miro.
"The album is an absolute delight that keeps surprising as it unfolds into tracks such as "Far More Drums," "Maori Blues," and the Mingus-like human percussion heard in "Unsquare Dance." Impex's reissue is excellent... Great stuff." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, Janaury 2011
