    Where are your musical roots? This one song started my entire (amateur) career as a drummer and jazz lover. I was 12 when I discovered this.

    This is the famous Take Five by the Dave Bruebeck Quartet. It was on an album called Time Out because many of the songs were experiments in different time signatures.

    The cut starts partway into the song where drummer Joe Morello starts into his drum solo. The thing about this song is that it is in 5/4 time, which is very unusual, especially for 1961.

    The bass player is holding down the beat on 4, 5, 1, while Dave comps the famous chord progression. Joe Morello moves into his solo using his drum set as an instrument that mirrors Dave's chord progression. He plays a kind of rhythmic tone poem but never lets you forget the time signature.

    The song ends with Paul Desmond and that impossibly airy alto sax finishing up with the melody.

    Try tapping your foot to it and you will see what I mean.

    My music roots... hmm... I was raised with the Indigo Girls, The Smiths, The Cure, Depeche Mode, and Billy Idol. Hehe. I still listen to all of those bands today.
