Sunday Jazz — “Take FIve”

61ohwjbf6sl_ss500_Another installment of Sunday Jazz is upon us. We’re focusing on Dave Brubeck’s saxophonist, Paul Desmond’s composed song, “Take Five”. First recorded by the Dave Brubeck quartet in 1959, the song became a hit in 1961. Once Desmond passed in 1977, all proceeds from the song go to the American Red Cross. (Repost)
