It's difficult to imagine, these days, the influence that 'Take Five' had over the Jazz world, and music in general.
It comes from 1959, and was written by Paul Desmond. The tune was later made famous by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, and I can well remember being mesmerised by the unusual beat (a five-beat rhythm) employed by Desmond.
The supremely talented Paul Desmond is seen here on Alto Sax, accompanied by Brubeck, who can be seen showing his obvious admiration for him.
Four guys in crisp dark suits. A Piano, a Sax, basic Drums, and a Double Bass. Brilliant.
A classic Jazz standard that doesn't age!
