When brother Wayne and I were in our early teens, Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” was one of the most requested pop/jazz songs of the day and the biggest-selling jazz single of all time. That popularity stretched over two gigging seasons. I don’t know if learning the song attracted many girls, but it sure earned us respect amongst musicians.
