Time Changes is a 1963 album by The Dave Brubeck Quartet, based upon the use of time signatures that were, because of Brubeck's previous work, a mainstay in popular jazz music.

The whole second side of the album, the composition "Elementals", resulted from a relationship with Rayburn Wright, The Eastman School of Music and its "Arranger's Workshop" and an impending concert in Rochester, New York. It was Mr. Brubeck's first orchestral composition.


"Time Changes" is a continuation of Brubeck's hit albums Time Out, Time Further Out and Countdown—Time in Outer Space, exploring the elements of time in jazz and music, while extending itself into a "do-it-yourself" concerto, which comprises the whole of side two, with orchestral accompaniment.[2] The cover painting is by the internationally acclaimed American abstract painter Sam Francis.
