Musical interlude: Dave Brubeck Quartet, "Take Five"


  1. I am so into 'cool jazz' right now, and this is one of the great examples of the genre. Thanks for posting it!

  2. Glad you liked it. I've been listening to a lot of obscure late 60s psychedelia lately, and when I heard Quicksilver Messenger Service's "Silver and Gold" (arguably the first jazz-rock song, which I posted Thursday) it sounded really familiar. I thought it must be a cover, but then I finally figured out that it was a kind of a homage to "Take Five." So I found a good version of "Take Five" and posted both of them.

  3. It's actually "Gold and Silver," not "Silver and Gold" (duh).


What do you think?
