Town Hall, Birmingham November 1961 concert flyer
Original first printing concert handbill advertising the Dave Brubeck Quartet at the Town Hall in Birmingham [England] on Wednesday, 22nd November, 1961, presented by Harold Davison and Arthur Howes, and with the Vic Ash/Harry Klein Five 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 15.0 x 28.3 cm and is printed in blue and black inks on thin, coated paper stock. Complete with the original postal booking form still intact. In near excellent unfolded condition.
