The Dome, Brighton January 1961 concert flyer
Original first printing concert handbill advertising the Dave Brubeck Quartet at the The Dome in Brighton [England] on Saturday, 21st January, 1961, presented by Harold Davison, and with the Joe Harriott Quintet also on the bill. By this time, Time Further Out has just been released. Produced by Teo Macero, the album continued the 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”, a tribute to his newborn son, in 4/4; “Far More Blue” and “Far More Drums” in 5/4; “Maori Blues” in 6/4; “Unsure Dance” in 7/4; “Bru’s Boogie Woogie” in 8/8; and concluding with “Blue Shadows in the Street” in 9/8. The time signatures are listed on the album’s cover, where they are referred to as “tempos”. Like Time Out, Time Further Out’s cover features a work of modern art: a painting by Catalan-Spanish artist Joan Miró.
The flyer measures 15.2 x 25.2 cm and is beautifully printed in blue and black inks on thin, smooth-finish paper stock. Complete with the original postal booking form still intact.
