When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

That's sad. I actually heard Dave Brubeck perform Take Five live back in 2000. One of my most memorable concert moments.

Bummer. We were just talking about him while walking into the theater to see Lincoln. My son was mentioning how it was fun to play Take 5 on his violin.

Listening to my Cool Jazz Pandora Channel right now. He should be showing up any minute.

Not only a great artist but a great and giving person.

I'll have to pull out Time Out and give it another listen. One of my favorite jazz albums of all time.

If you like the Time Out album, try Time Further Out for some really wild time signatures!

I thought this was interesting:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Take_Five

"'Take Five' is a jazz piece written by Paul Desmond and performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet on their 1959 album Time Out. ... Upon his death in 1977, Desmond left the rights to royalties for performances and compositions, including 'Take Five', to the American Red Cross, which has since received combined royalties of approximately $100,000 per year."

As a kid growing up, my mom would push me into piano lessons, and so I learned Liszt, Chopin, Bach and Beethoven.

Then in my teens I heard Brubeck's "Blue Rondo a la Turk." Next day, I went out and bought "Time Out" and "Time Further Out" ... and I've been timing out since.

Thank you Dave Brubeck Quartet for introducing me to jazz and funky tempos. My mother, though, curses you.

"Take Five" was the first recording that was played in my 7th grade music class in my first day of junior high school.

While I never significantly followed instrumental jazz, it's difficult to appreciate any music and not acknowledge the influence of Dave Brubeck.

The passing of a true legend.

I saw Dave play at the Royal festival Hall in London in 1998 and it was a fantastic concert. A great figure in the world of jazz, who showed he was also a great man by refusing to play segregated jazz clubs in his early days. Thanks for all the memories, Dave.
