“Take Five” is a jazz piece composed by Paul Desmond and performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet on their 1959 album Time Out. Recorded at Columbia Records’ 30th Street Studio in New York City on July 1, 1959, fully two years later it became an unlikely one-hit wonder and the best-selling jazz single of all time. Written in the key of E-flat minor, it is famous for its distinctive two-chord piano vamp; catchy blues-scale saxophone melody; imaginative, jolting drum solo; and use of the unusual quintuple (5/4) time, from which its name is derived. It was first played by the Quartet to a live audience at the Village Gate nightclub in New York City in 1959.
