Dave Brubeck - Take Five


Donovan Jackson : 5 has so much meaning in this song. 1. It's in 5/4 time 2. The song is about 5 min long 3. It should get a 5 star rating

HumansAreDumb : Isn't it amazing how we can voluntarily access such masterpieces in today's world through this magical thing called the internet? Just imagine being in those days when it is considered lucky to find something as good as this in the local store...

Hussein Shukri : I never heard before similar music, it is a masterpiece

Ali hassan : 2019 anyone?

Joe Burgess : I still recall (at age 78 recalling is tougher than it usta be) the first time I heard this.  It was a single on the jukebox in the Hilltopper Café across Center Street from the campus of Western Kentucky (then) State College in Bowling Green.  It was late summer-early fall, 1959. It had been released as a single throughout the Nashville market of which BG was a part. I and a whole, whole lot of other Western students who ate there put a lot of dimes into that juke box to play what was fast becoming a monster hit on campuses around the region. I was in the café near-daily, since I lived in a $15-a-month basement room in the rooming house next door. It became a campus hit nationally two years later. The record in the café wore out and had to be replaced -- as did the one in the student center grill jukebox -- as I recall. I bought the album and later bought it again after I loaned it to someone who failed to return it. Still have that second vinyl album all these years later (and about 3 other DBQ vinyls) -- plus the classic on cartridge tape and CD albums that I have picked up along the years. Regret never having seen the quartet in concert. That's getting to be a long time ago -- and every year many young people discover Brubeck and Desmond and Morello and Wright and "Take Five."  Maybe there's hope for the world, after all . . .

Bronk0Nagurski : This has "perfect crime" or "plot twist" montage written all over it.

toushou : hey. it takes me 35 years ago. i was driving 5th ave as listening this. NY the best.

Chris Crawford : I grew up with my mom playing this album over and over and dancing around the house to it. It's as early a memory as any in my life - born in '57 so it was new when she was playing it and I was hearing it. I think of her when I hear it.

shortbread71 : I knew I would marry the man I was in love with when I gave him my copy of this album and he already owned it

andre sydney : I remembered my first time hearing this song, it was about 10:30 pm I was leaving work, it was around December close to Christmas and the taxis are going by, and everything just felt right, and a guy on his sax was playing this song, and ever since that night in Manhattan, every time I play this song it reminds me of Manhattan at night with all the bright lights. I love this song.

Melinda Mullins : Classic greatness🎶🎵🎼🎶✌
