Take Five This Weekend

1961… Jazz was being explored by middle-aged white guys wearing suits, white shirts and simple ties. Dave Brubeck’s patience was wearing thin, so he started exploring bizarre rhythm combinations. One result was this 5/4 time classic Take Five. Why don’t you take five this holiday weekend and just chill a bit?

    Take Five and The House of the Rising Sun were two songs that greatly helped me learn how to count while playing the piano. That’s Why They Call It The Blues is another.

    Also the House of the Rising Sun taught me how to have my left hand playing a different “count” than my right.
