This is what catman916 on YOUTUBE  has to say about PAUL DESMONDs 'TAKE FIVE'...."One of the most famous jazz recordings of all time, "Take Five" written by Paul Desmond was recorded in the unusual 5/4 time by The Dave Brubeck Quartet in New York City on June 25, July 1, and August 18, 1959 and released on their Columbia album Time Out. "Take Five" was one of the first jazz compositions to achieve mainstream success, selling more than a million copies and reaching #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #5 on Billboard's Easy Listening survey. The original recording lasted a full 5:24 though the single version was cut to 2:55. Paul Desmond's alto saxophone and Joe Morello's drum solo really stand out. The album is available on CD on the Sony label. Along with Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, John Coltrane's My Favorite Things, and Stan Getz's Focus, Brubeck's "Time Out" is one of the essential jazz recordings to have."
