Thanks Dave
Addictive and hip.
So sweet. He's making love with his sax! Take Five Paul.
I like this very laid back.
When the sax starts up I have to exhale.

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.
My favorite growing up 60s jazz tune by this great artist......
It says it has lyrics, but it doesn't.
Still is so good.

@Jon Mendoza: I think it's on Sim City
As far as I know, the first jazz tune in 5/4. Desmond wrote this one.
I think that's Joe Moerello on drums.
the drumming is fabulous... amazing artist.
Just... Smooth

Loss of one of the great ones today!
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.
ellis20091
oh my god yeah
Great tune. One of my all-time favorites!

local jazz station had a vote for best jazz tune ever , hands down Take Five won . heard equally great jazz , but noe better .
Where have I heard this before? Some commercial I think.

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.
cool jazz, dave, miles, john...

Brubeck, Desmond, Morelo & Wright = Magic! Outstanding.
