The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Take Five (1961)

I spotted this vintage jazz music video from the Dave Brubeck Quartet this morning on You Tube.

American Jazz Pianist Dave Brubeck recorded this classic jazz standard entitled "Take Five" during the early 1960's. It is still a popular jazz hit today that has stood the test of time.

As a musician yourself and a lover of many types of music, you'll be interested to know that "Take Five" was composed by the saxophone player, Paul Desmond.

Desmond willed all his royalties following his death to the American Red Cross, which has reportedly received more than $100,000 a year since Desmond's passing in 1977. What an awesome legacy.
