1 chrisbo 3 months ago Hello all, it's been awhile, long boring story. To tell it would seem self serving. Nuff said. So anyhoo, the place where i'm at at this point in time has piped in elevator muzak playing at low level 24/7 and while waiting for other people to come into my room out of the corner of my ear I realize that Daves Brubeck's Take Five is playing, one of the most enjoyable tunes of all time in my opinion. While hearing it this time I came to understand that Mr Brubeck was one of the most selfless giving composers around, to me I feel that he composed that tune for his band, they all of them have their moments, they all are given a time to shine, and all the while for the whole tune Dave just keeps up a simple rhythm on the keys as if he indeed is just taking five and laying back. I wonder if thats why he named it what he did, whatever the reason I'm glad he wrote it.
