Take...Four? [Jul. 16th, 2014|08:41 pm]
What Was That Song?


[music |Implicit in the topic.]

I happened upon the following cover of the archetypal cool jazz song "Take Five" on a ringtone website, and found it amusing for a pedantic and nitpickety reason: "Take Five" was composed specifically to showcase the exotic (to most Euro-American ears) 5/4 time signature, and appeared on an album (Out of Time, 1961, by the Dave Brubeck Quartet) devoted to unusual time signatures--and yet this rendition is performed to a standard 4/4 hip-hop beat.

Any idea who performed this cover? http://www.zedge.net/ringtone/1162086/

Thank you, but I'm afraid I didn't find any sample from "Take Five" in the version I looked up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqF606H3XSw
