Song of the Day: Take Five, RIP Big Dave Brubeck

One day short of 92. Here's the song I most associate with Brubeck, though it was written by Brubeck Quartet member Paul Desmond.

I've heard several interesting variations on this song. There's this reggae-ish version that was used as the theme song for "The Secret Lives of Machines" which morphed the song into 4/4 time instead of its normal 5/4.

The other one I can remember off the top of my head was at a Chinese restaurant, played using Asian instruments.
