Blue Rondo à la Turk is a jazz standard composition by Dave Brubeck. It appeared on the album Time Out in 1959. It is written in 9/8 time, with one side theme in 4/4, and the choice of rhythm was inspired by the Turkish aksak time signatures. It was originally recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet with Dave Brubeck on piano, Paul Desmond on alto saxophone, Eugene Wright on bass, and Joe Morello on drums.
