RIP Dave Brubeck, who passed away today. The embedded video is of his greatest hit, but of course there is a lot more great Dave Brubeck music than just this one piece.
Take Five is unusual in its time signature. I am not as knowledgeable of the technicalities of music as I would like, but if you attend church services on a regular basis Dave Brubeck’s influence is something you can hear. There are a few hymns sang regularly in the parishes my wife and I attend that get me to thinking of Take Five, I look in the hymnal and sure enough they have they have the same signature.
No matter, RIP Dave and thanks for the music.
