Friday Night Videos

And now for something completely different... The Dave Brubeck Quartet with a 1961 performance of "Take 5." It's been 50 years since this instrumental with the odd 5/4 time signature became a breakthrough jazz hit, propelling the album Time Out to no. 2 on the Billboard pop charts. Wow, hard to believe.

Previously on Friday Night Videos... Talking Heads.

  1. Thanks for posting the video. Now I'm of the mind to find the sheet music, get my sax in shape, and have a go at it.

    Probably won't happen, though.
