Take Five

April 20, 2009 8:27 PM

Since I recently started learning alto sax, I've been trying to learn the well known Paul Desmond standard Take Five, but don't have a playalong for it. So tonight I made one. This is it.

Eight beats intro, 175bpm, four turns round the form, concert Ebm as God and Paul Desmond intended. Might be a bit wonky in places. Tried to not overplay on the piano part. May have failed. Not sure. I'd love to hear the results of Mefites playing along with it. Any other comments or criticism gratefully received.

1-2-3-4-5, 1-2-3-4-5... nicely done.

It may not be of much use to you, but every time take five is mentioned I feel the urge to mention this song, which openly steals from it, with great results. Hope you like it.
