Take Five - The Dave Brubeck Quartet

While "Take Five" was not the first jazz composition to use the unusual quintuple (5/4) time meter, it was one of the first in the United States to achieve mainstream significance. Upon his death in 1977, composer Paul Desmond (heard here on saxophone) willed the royalties for his performances and compositions, including "Take Five", to the American Red Cross.
