Take Five

One of the many un-sung hero session players you will find at any gig around the world diligently playing the support role. The image title is in reference to one of my all time favourite jazz tracks.

""Take Five" is a classic jazz piece first recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet and released on its 1959 album Time Out. It became the first million-selling jazz single on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1961, at a time when rock music was in fashion.

"Take Five" became Brubeck's best known and signature tune, although it was composed by Paul Desmond, the group's saxophonist, based on drummer Joe Morello's 5/4 beat. It became famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody and use of an unusual five beat quintuple time, from which its name is derived."
