"Take Five" is a classic jazz piece first recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet and released on its 1959 album Time Out. It became the first million-selling jazz single on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1961, at a time when rock music was in fashion. Take Five became Brubecks best known and signature tune, although it was composed by Paul Desmond, the group's saxophonist, based on drummer Joe Morellos 5/4 beat. It became famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody and use of an unusual five beat quintuple time, from which its name is derived. The original single was recorded at Columbia's 30th Street Studios in New York City on June 25, July 1 & August 18, 1959. Dave Brubeck and Steve Race wrote the liner notes for the album. While "Take Five" was not the first jazz composition to use this meter, it was the first of United States mainstream significance. The song was recorded.    Download this sheet!
About the Artist
Paul Desmond (November 25, 1924 May 30, 1977), born Paul Emil Breitenfeld, was a jazz alto saxophonist and composer born in San Francisco, best known for the work he did in the Dave Brubeck Quartet and for penning that group's greatest hit, "Take Five". Known to have possessed an idiosyncratic wit, he was one of the most popular musicians to come out of the West Coast's "cool jazz" scene. He played a Selmer Super Balanced Action alto saxophone with an M. C. Gregory model 4A-18M mouthpiece both circa 1951 with Rico 3 reeds. In addition to his work with Brubeck he led several of his own groups and did significant collaborations with artists such as Gerry Mulligan, Jim Hall and Chet Baker. After years of chain smoking and general poor health, Desmond succumbed to lung cancer in 1977 following one last tour with Brubeck.
