Take Five!

Performed by ABRSM examiner Gary Ryan, this arrangement of Take Five is from the ABRSM Guitar syllabus (from 2019) and features in the Guitar Exam Pieces book at Grade 5.

Take Five appeared on the 1959 LP Time Out by the American jazz group the Dave Brubeck Quartet. Brubeck composed most of the tracks on the album, using the unconventional time signatures for which he was renowned, but this piece in 5/4 was written by the Quartet’s saxophonist Paul Desmond.
