Indie Laundry goes jazz with Dave Brubeck Take Five

Sometimes it's just not time for rock or indie. These are the jazztimes. And for some snack-minutes I've felt it. And learned a bit about Dave Brubeck - the shang-chi of the jazzpiano.
Check out this 1961 recording of Take Five. The alt-sax is Paul Desmond and the drummer is Joe Morello. He is brilliant. Behold the moment around the 1:45 mark. Such subtle restraint, and then some serious speed to top things off. Just what you need for these small jazztime moments.
