The level of success Dave Brubeck attained with his album Time Out was unprecedented in jazz at the time of its release in 1959. Over the decades, for all the subsequent upheavals in jazz, its popularity has never waned -- perhaps because it was such an upheaval for its challenging use of unusual meters. And because Paul Desmond's delicate yet insistent alto saxophone sound was, and remains, so haunting. "Take Five" may be the single most widely recognizable piece jazz has produced. But "Take Five" is so much the work of Brubeck, Desmond, Gene Wright, and Joe Morello that it has never been covered much by other jazz artists. The two most covered, and most exquisite, Brubeck pieces remain "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "The Duke", both of whose beauty was appreciated very early by Miles Davis.
