American jazz pianist and compose Dave Brubeck’s most famous song is “Take Five.” Brubeck is considered one of the foremost exponents of cool jazz. In this video, it is re-imagined with an arrangement by musicians from Sachal Studios in Lahore, Pakistan. The result is a beautiful East-West fusion experience! Brubeck explained that the song is called “Take Five” because it was written in an unusual 5/4 meter. It was one of the first Jazz songs with a time signature other than the standard 4/4 beat or 3/4 waltz time. He expressed his appreciation for this version, noting it as a huge compliment.
