BLUE RONDO A LA TURK

Latest update on 30/04/2016

Artist: Dave Brubeck
Author: Dave Brubeck
Label: Columbia
Year: 1959

On Time Out, an lp filled with unorthodox rhythm patterns: Take Five in 5/4 and this one in 9/8 has a Bulgarian folk origin. Bela Bartok used it in Six Dances in Bulgarian Rhythm. Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca is something completely different, covered by Kenny Ball and Exception.

Covers:

1962:

Claude Nougaro [as A bout de souffle]

1967:

Nice [as Rondo]

1969:

Caterina Valente

1970:

Emerson, Lake & Palmer [on the Isle of Wight, their first show ever]

1981:

Al Jarreau [as Round, Round, Round with own lyrics]

1992:

Marcel Dadi

2000:

Catch 22 [as Blue Rondo]

2001:

B.B. King [Live In Nice]

2003:

Brave Combo

After the (unexpected) success of Time Out, Dave Brubeck came up with the sequel Time Further Out, again full of deviant rhythms and again with a hit: Unsquare Dance in 7/4; covered by Don Ellis as Pussy Wiggle Stomp.
