Celebrating Time Out:  Bill Bruford on Joe Morello

Celebrating Time Out: Bill Bruford on Joe Morello

March 14, 2011 Off By The Jazz Messenger

In 2009, Dave Brubeck’s musical masterpiece Time Out turned 50 and on behalf of Legacy Recordings, I produced a podcast series celebrating this timeless work. Along with interviewing Dave Brubeck himself about the album, I also interviewed three additional musicians saxophonist David Sanborn, bassist Mike Richmond and drummer Bill Bruford to discuss the influential work of Time Out band members, Paul Desmond, Eugene Wright and Joe Morello. For reasons beyond my scope, this series was never released. Upon hearing the news of Joe Morello’s passing over the weekend, we are finally releasing the Time Out podcast series, beginning with Bill Bruford’s personal take on the brilliant drumming of the late Joe Morello. – JV
