Take Five To Eternity

Forbidden to listen to the radio — his mother believed that if you wanted to hear music you should play it —Dave Brubeck and his two brothers all played various instruments and knew classical études, spirituals and cowboy songs...

Dave Brubeck

Take Five is pure mathemagic based on a fraction that goes by the name of Five-Fourths

I just received word from a representative of the Institute of Inane Research.
Moments ago, Mr. Brubeck was greeted at the Pearly Gates by Mr. Pythagoras.
"Did you see my quote above your photograph?"
"Say what?"
"Music is the mathematics of the Gods."
"And Mr. Satchmo is awaiting you."
"Yes, really."
"Wow. I'm feeling younger already!"
The next Inane page is here.
