Morning Song – Take Ten

July 15, 2017

“Take Five” made Dave Brubeck famous, but it was written by saxophonist Paul Desmond. A few years later, Desmond was cutting an album of his own, so he stuck with what worked—reworking “Take Five” slightly and changing the time signature to 10/4.

Desmond once said his goal was to play alto sax “like a dry martini“; on “Take Ten” he succeeds.

Enjoy.
