Speaking of "Take Five", a few years ago, I was browsing around the acoustic room at a Guitar Center. A young fella strolled into the high end room. He either rode his bike there or his Mom dropped him off because he certainly wasn't old enough to drive. He had a little smirk on his face as he picked a Taylor guitar off the wall. Instead of the "Expected" banging and thumping, he went on to play an incredible version of "Take Five"...Little brat!
Take Five was on of my favorites.
I was busy yesterday and couldn't post this, but December 6th was the occasion of what would've been Dave Brubeck's 102nd birthday. I've remained a huge fan from the '50s, actually getting his personal permission to arrange a couple of his songs for both my Masters Recital and to perform with symphony orchestras on several occasions when I used to be in the KT and we performed lots of Pops Concerts. So happy birthday, Dave.
