Take 5: Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond (Themes and Variations) -example of West Coast Cool Jazz; 1950's -Take Five was a new and exiting piece of music - mainly due to it's catchy tune (lasting 24 bars); its ABA form, syncopated rhythm and large scope for improvisation* -1 bar rhythmic ostinato (riff) 1st on the piano, drums and bass; foundations of the piece because of its hypnotic swing *1st Improvisation (break): Saxophone; plays dotted rhythms, accents, syncopated rhythms, repeated phrases *2nd Improvistaion: Drums; shows off enormous tones and complex rhythms. The piece finishes off with the final statement of the theme ( known as the chorus ). Hope this helps!
