great band! get 'time out', it has 'take five' on it, but the whole album is good. so is 'time further out' and 'jazz impressions of japan'. any album with paul desmond playing sax is worth your hard-earned, as far as i'm concerned...

It contains remastered editions of "Time Out"; "Time Further Out"; "Countdown:

Time in Outer Space"; "Time Changes"; and "Time In".

I am also partial to Brubeck's "Jazz Goes to College"; "Jazz at Oberlin"; "Jazz: Red,

Hot and Cool"; "Dave Brubeck Quartet at Carnegie Hall"; and "Bravo! Brubeck" which

features one of the sweetest Paul Desmond sax solos you will ever hear on the song

"La Paloma Azul"(The Blue Dove).

Dave Brubeck: An Unlikely Hit, 50 Years Strong

All Things Considered, June 12, 2009 - In 1959, jazz pianist Dave Brubeck topped the pop charts and shook up the notion of rhythm in jazz with an odd-metered song called "Take Five."

Only trained musicians might understand exactly what gave the Paul Desmond-penned song its flow. It was all in the time signature: five beats to the measure, a departure from more traditional four-four time in jazz. It was cutting-edge and cool — a song millions would scoop up and savor. In an interview with Michele Norris, Brubeck explains what made the time signature so difficult.

"You were brought up playing in four-four," Brubeck says. "Everybody could walk to it and dance to it. Put an extra beat on it — everybody's tripping."
