The Essential Dave Brubeck is a compilation album by American jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck, released in 2003 via Columbia Records.

This compilation comprises 17 tracks spanning his career from 1955 though to 1971 as a solo artist and also with the Dave Brubeck Quartet.

Tracks include the classic Take Five, Blue Rondo à la Turk, and Three To Get Ready from the 1959 Time Out album, which reached #2 on the US Pop Albums Charts in 1961.  The Time Out album explored unusual time signatures.
