Cor 92 a good age. I do remember his Dave Bruebeck quartet and Take 5 was one of my favorite old 78,s

Loved Take Five, but a good age.

and in the middle eight the next player to takeover, apparently couldnt find the right beat to come in on, burst of giggles n laughter......the pianist, drummer,and bass player were vamping the rhythm .waiting.............~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take 5 must be one of the "classic pops" which is instantly recognised by a good proportion of people.
What would others be (probably excluding The Beatles whose output is universally recognised).

Take 5 is difficult and unusual to play as it is in 5/4 time...5 beats to the bar and drummers in particular can find it hard as its not an even number to get the accents on.
I admired Dave Brubeck and particularly liked Paul Desmond on sax.
RIP Dave.

I was at a wedding where the music chosen was "Whiter Shade of Pale"
unfortunately the organist had a very bad day..............

I loved the unusual timing of Take 5, so typical of Dave Brubeck.
He would have been 92 tomorrow.

Love his music

I have an LP, Dave Brubeck with his sons........ Take 5 is one track.
