"Take Five" is a jazz standard composed by Paul Desmond and originally recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet for its 1959 album Time Out. It was the first jazz instrumental to sell a million copies. A song everyone, jazz fans or not, have heard. I personally enjoy the part where Joe Morello's drums take over the melody.
