Take FiveIt's difficult to find a piece of music as smooth and cool as this. An enduring jazz standard with its distinguishing tempo and catchy saxophone that gained mainstream popularity during a time when rock was king. From what I have read the song is very significant for its use of a 5/4 tempo – an experimental rhythm that many people told Brubeck could not be done.

The original recording (which was made in only two takes) can be found on the masterpiece album Time Out, but the piece has been recorded many, many times by several artists.
