Have a great birthday Dave and stick around longer please!
"Take Five", was possibly my first favourite jazz piece when I was just a skinny little kid. (Although I realise the late Paul Desmond wrote it.) Gee I had fun trying to imitate Joe Morello's dangly drum solo. Additionally, I still adore Desmond's cool alto sound.
Loved that quirky album cover art on "Time Out".
Thanks Dave.
