Attention X-Files devotees: there are bona fide time machines out there. Thanks to Columbia/Legacy in general, and Dave Brubeck in particular, they are now available and for sale. They come neatly wrapped in blue boxes and bear paranormal titles such as Time Out, Time Further Out, Countdown: Time in Outer Space, Time Changes and Time In.

Apparently Telarc has already made use of one of those time machines. It has contributed a limited-edition CD solo recording by Brubeck called Private Brubeck Remembers in which he honors the 60th anniversary of D-Day by playing “an autobiography of my war years.” Telarc has also included another CD in that collection devoted to a long interview between Brubeck and Walter Cronkite.
