Musical Interlude: Monticup Plays "Take Five"

Posted by Peter Monticup on 6/2/2020 to Monticup's Music

What an amazing composition!
Written by Paul Desmond and originally recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, this is a challenging piece to play.
It's called "Take Five" because it was written in an unusual 5/4 meter.
It was one of the first Jazz songs with a time signature other than the standard 4/4 beat or 3/4 waltz time.

And little known fact- it has lyrics!

"Won't you stop and take
A little time out with me
Just take five
Stop your busy day
And take the time out
To see if I'm alive
Just take five..."
