Look at this EU with all its incompetence and unable figures and f***ing Merkel de facto ruling it. Brexit is, at least for me, very understandable. And Trump is certainly an egomaniac a******, but far from being the quasi-dictator western media want us to believe he is.
Far, far worse
is the suspension of our democratic rights due to a virus - and surprise, surprise, not executed by evil right wings!

Hearing this always induces a mix of nostalgia and wonder in me... When I was in Kindergarten; must have been '66 or '67; a teacher from a 6th Grade class held in the same school building came and took us upstairs to see a documentary about life in Tokyo, Japan. Tokyo was a modern miracle, having been rebuilt from a parking lot of ashes, the narrator said, and as the camera showed the milling crowds and chaotic intersections, added, "it is also the most densely populated place on the planet...yet the Japanese don't seem to mind being in such close quarters... Here, everything is the latest marvel of technology, from the new Bullet Train to the local commuter trains that run like clockwork..." Around the same time, my parents took us to a local Japanese restaurant. I was entranced. When I was 11, our house burned down one night while we were at The Circus, and we moved across town. When I was 16, I got my first job at a new restaurant that was owned by the same lady from Kobe who had owned the one we used to live near, with the same painting of Fuji-san on the wall. Also hanging on the wall was an exquisite kanji poem, "Ju Zan, Fuku Kai," or "Great Mountain, Happy Ocean," that is perhaps best translated as "The Mountain is Majestic, Proud, and Fortunate in its Great Height, while The Ocean is Happy and Content in its Vast Depth." It plays particularly well on the double meaning gained by interpreting Fuku for both its visual meaning of "happy," and its phonetic meaning of "deep." To me, this is rather like a kind of Quantum cerebration, and fully embodies and eloquently expresses the complex idea of Dao or the concept of Yin and Yang. When I was 18, leaving town for Engineering School, Emi took it off the wall and gave it to me, predicting that within ten years I would be in Japan, because it was my dream and destiny. Eight years later, I found myself presented with amazing views of Fuji-san from my windows, and began my 20-year stay there... Life is an often inscrutable mystery, woven in a tapestry not easily comprehended from any particular viewpoint along its path. May I always be a happy and content participant in its frenzied dance of infinite intricate flu
 



Timely. Thank you!

This - THIS - is why I like RP. Though I have Brubeck music, I've never heard this masterpiece before. WOW. In fact, looking back at the 20 or so previous songs, 5 or 6 artists aren't familiar to me. Of the ones that are, I've got music from half, but not this music, so Bill has just introduced me to a lot of "new" stuff and artists.

Oh yeah, that other thing about RP. Insightful comments from other listeners, like coloradojohn below. This is compelling reading for me, and there are a few others here that are brilliant wordsmiths, making me envious of their writing skills. Between Bill's music selection making me listen, and comments making me read, I CAN'T GET SHIT DONE WITH MY WORK. Give a guy a break...
 

I just came here to say the same thing -- haven't heard it.   Love it.

Thanks, all_ears, for writing this so I don't have to.  Now I can get back to work.
I prefer Bobby Millitelo's flute version with DB's '90s quartet. 
WOW, huge 10 from your buddy

 Nice to hear stories like this instead of the whiners complaining about a singer's voice etc. when all they need to do is push the skip button instead of bothering us with trivial complaints.

Funny!  And 100% agreed about BillG and CoJo...and I feel the same about NOT being able to get shit done.  Oh well....can't complain too much, eh?  Long Live RP!!  Oh...I rated this track as a 9...it's sublime!

Don't think this has been answered yet - he's be using tympani mallets on the tom-toms. You sort of had the answer all along ;-)
Gosh, same year as "Love Me Do", wasn't the world diverse back then
Glad to have 'discovered' this one. Brubeck that doesn't really sound like Brubeck.
Stunning. The great Paul Desmond on alto
Saw Brubeck's Play Brubeck a few weeks ago at Ronnie Scott's. They played this  - albeit about a 10 min version.

Magnificent

Really don't understand why I never joined there years ago

I've heard several versions of this song from Brubeck and they are all absolutely hypnotic.  Paul Desmond was a truly talented sax player.
One of my faves.
{#Clap}{#Clap}{#Clap}{#Meditate}{#Notworthy}
It's just cool, trippy, spacy, stuff. I'm afraid this is a lost music form: whether its jazz or RnR.   

 
I'm sure others consider this "great", which is fine: too each their own. However, i just find this (and jazz in general) to be utterly boring.

Funny how after just a few seconds I thought "this has got to be Brubeck" and sure enough. One thing I like especially about this song is it is soooo laid back. It sounds like drums, sax, piano, no one is trying very hard, in a good way, it's like water flowing downstream: it just wants to go there. Sounds almost like a kettle drum: what is that?
Joe Morello, drummer, with Brubeck

This about the drummer, Joe Morello:

Morello suffered from partial vision from birth, and devoted himself to indoor activities. At six years old, he began studying the violin. Three years later, he was a featured soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, playing Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, and again three years later.

At the age of 15, Morello met the violinist Jascha Heifetz and decided that he would never be able to equal Heifetz's "sound". Therefore, he switched to drumming, first studying with a show drummer named Joe Sefcik and then George Lawrence Stone, author of the noted drum textbook Stick Control for the Snare Drummer. Stone was so impressed with Morello's ideas that he incorporated them into his next book, Accents & Rebounds, which is dedicated to Morello. Later, Morello studied with Radio City Music Hall percussionist Billy Gladstone.

Released in 1962? More than 50 years later, and still a sonic adventure. Had no idea it was out there. Thanks RP for the fresh sounds on a daily basis.
Spooky, how synchronous RP can be. I was just now writing to a gal in La Paz, Bolivia, about what it was like to live 20 years in Japan!
I'm reminded what it is like to hear true masters of koto — and I have seen and heard some on the BASS koto, too; a truly tatami mat-sized beast of a stringed instrument, and when you get a koto ensemble really going, and add a shakuhachi, or bamboo flute, and a shamisen (Japanese banjo) or two, it sets up some mighty primeval resonances in the heart, soul, mind and body. Transcendent Zen!
I really like this.. I think the better version is from We Are All Together Again for the First Time.. (1973) with Gerry Mulligan..Jack Six on bass and Allan Dawson on drums ....yes its also the first time I ever heard Koto Song... Check it out ! and a great tune called Truth from the same album.. technically terrific recording in Germany I think..Thank you for taking me back in time to the mid 70's when I first got hold of this !!!

I am sorry, but I don't agree with your comment. I can accept that you don't like it, don't respect it, or whatever, but you cannot determine for the rest of the world's population what sucks and what doesn't.
And for the record, I think this is terrific. 
Respectfully suggest that you mute this till it ends.  
Berkeley boy done good...RIP
Dave remade this with his new Quartet in the 90's on Late Night. Bobby Militello on the flute is a better arrangement - more in tune with the theme - than the soprano sax.

Brubeck and Co at their very best I think.

a flashback man, the album art is a memory-burst from the 60's of laying on the carpet next to my dad's big stereo with that music playing,  thought it was "there was a boy...a very strange enchanted ..." but no, it's even more profoundly of that time and so magically cool...really enchanting

Wow, seriously .. this is absolutely an amazing piece of music!  I've heard of Dave Brubeck, because I do like Jazz .. however, never heard this song until you played it .. and you blend so beautifully .. I don't know how you do it .. this song struck a cord in me ... and I now have it on my ipod and when it plays, it puts a smile on my face.  Again, thank you RP

  As did I. Dave Brubeck was, in a sense, so ubiquitous that it was possible to forget how good the music was. As fine as Take Five was, it only skims the surface of a lifetime of impressive work.


RIP I LOVE YOU DAVE.  5 is my favorite no bc of your genious.

Ditto, great set

This is one of those tunes that really grabbed my attention — it's the kind that makes me yearn to hear more from this particular album.  My finger is drifting to the Amazon button....

This is on my "Vaguely Japanese" mix - see the full list at https://sites.google.com/site/tanamusicpicks/ if you're interested. Pretty interesting set, if you ask me. Anyway, there are several versions of Koto Song. I believe this may be the best.


I gave this a 10 long ago, with no comments...

this music is good for the ears...

 
This song was a lovely surprise. Thank you {#Daisy}
Just reading my emails and I hear the sax, and I think that surely is Paul Desmond .. such a peculiar sound down through the years. Been a Fan of this Band since a teeny bopper. Thanks for playing it RP,

Happy birthday to Dave Brubeck who was born on this day in 1920!
What a wonderful song to welcome the new sunrise... Thanks!
Man, such a nice tune.
Oh my, If you like Dave Brubeck and haven't heard this album BUY IT.  It is my single favorite Brubeck album, and some of Morello's most innovative percussion work.  Beautiful.
this is some nice dave.  and it's not 'take five'...
Thanks for that.
First time I hear the studio version.
There's a great live version on: "We're all together Again (for the first time)" with Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond.
Also a 16 mins long rendition of "Take Five". Amazing album.

Outstanding work from Mr. Brubeck et. al.  I don't have this album, but I'm sure going to buy it.

Forget Brubeck for a minute; took me a bout 3 seconds to recognize Paul Desmond.  Great horn player alongside a great piano player.
I'd never heard this either.  Really nice.
Wow.  I'm a (very) long time fan of Brubecks and have never heard this. Amazing. Gotta find it. still, my favorite Brubeck LP is Jazz Impressions of Eurasia.

Good stuff, I haven't played this LP in years....{#Music}
A balm to the ears - especially after the ear searing dreck of the previous track. (TA)
Nice version. Live at the blue note is even better.

And Bill, as much as I love Brubeck, would be nice to see you mix up the jazz choices, say a little Lester Young or some Bossa Nova from Getz
