I have always wanted an arrangement of Take Five but for some reason I never got around to it. Yesterday I got around to it. This has been simplified so that any self respecting Jr. High player could do it. The parts are very repetitious as you can see and once the individual rhythm has been learned, the rest is a piece of cake. The solo is in the fourth trumpet part and other than a couple Bb’s, it lays well for the player. I have left a section open for solo work or it can be skipped. The recording does not include possible repeats to lengthen the piece if needed. For all you Brubeck fans, this is a classic.
