If ya think I'm lying ..check out the lyrics to the song...which I didn't know there were any. It shows the songwriter as Paul Desmond... Peace

Take Five is most always attributed to Dave Brubeck, however, the song was written by Paul Desmond. The band I was playing in a few years ago asked Brubecks publishing company for permissions and we were directed to Paul Desmond's publishing company because we don't own the rights to that song.... Just sayin

Joe Morello (RIP) on drums. Keith Moon (RIP again) said his drumming style influenced him.

An all time classic. I feel this will be played 50 more years.

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..
