Not sure how this popped up on my stations but always liked this song. Had flashback to when I was like 9 yrs old when my sister's boyfriend taught me part of this on piano....

I was all of 18 when I first heard this play in one of my barracks mates room while serving my country in the Air Force. Every time I hear it I go back to that day and thank God. Jazz has become my musical bedrock, especially Jazz Piano and Dave Brubeck's 'Take Five; leads the way.....Than k you Dave Brubeck and all you other Jazz musicians. You've made a big difference in my life and I know in other folks lives as well..

Pandora,
Thank you so much! I knew this piece with the first lovely notes of the sax, but I never knew the title, not the artist.
Love, Love Love this! :)

I'm pretty sure I could listen to this straight-on for another 12 hours and not get sick of it. Smooth and effortless beat.

As far as I know, the first jazz tune in 5/4. Desmond wrote this one.
Report as inappropriate
I think that's Joe Moerello on drums.

the drumming is fabulous... amazing artist.

Just... Smooth

Timeless for sure - I stop what I am doing every time I hear this song and turn the volume up

Absolutely classic and timeless!

This is one cool song

I can' t decide whether it's Desmond's luxurious playing or the 5/4 time, but this song is magnificent. If Life is a movie, this is the soundtrack.

oh yeah one other thing, this song was actually made for the drum solo, but the saxophone bit is the one that every one remembers.

This is one of the songs that says, "Turn the volume up,stop what you're doing, and groove to the music."

Wow...it's amazing. It's on my song list for my wedding.

this has become one of my favorites. Real music speaks to your soul.

Of the Brubeck corpus of work, this is the tune everyone seems to love instantly; Dave on piano hangs back to let Paul Desmond work magic, but the point of the song- Joe Morello's drum solo- is lovely, and all backed up by Gene Wright's elegant basswork. Classic.

Absolutely, case-parris! The definition of cool jazz.
