“One of Dave Brubeck’s more adventurous albums, this LP finds his Quartet exploring originals in a variety of potentially difficult time signatures including 11/4 and a polyrhythmic version of the dates’ one standard ‘Someday My Prince Will Come’. Other highlights include ‘Countdown’, ‘Castilian Drums’ and ‘Three’s a Crowd’. Highly recommended along with Brubeck’s other Time recordings.” Scott Yanow
