Having just listened to an old edition of the BBC's 'My Music' program on Radio 7 here's a puzzle.

Most of you probably have a copy in MIDI format of Dave Brubek's Take Five. But why did he call it that?

I'll post the answer to the site tomorrow morning if nobody gets there first...

Because it is in 5/4 time. It is probably the most famous 5/4 piece of music ever recorded.

Spot on as always Nigel. Sorry I can't send you a prize as I don't know where you are but we leave it as 'Subject Closed'.

Have a good day,

Mark

Nigel is the Administrator and owner of the Synthzone and lives on the beautiful California coast where he makes beautiful music with his band. Australia's loss is our gain.
Happy New Year Nigel and our new members and thank you for providing the synthzone with the technics forum as the second largest forum and the fastest growing.
If you want to send him a prize Nigel has a Pay Pal ICON at the top of the page that is there to help defray the out of pocket costs of this BBS and the Servers
