Take Five – Sachal Studios Orchestra


This is an interpretation of the Jazz standard “Take Five.” It is played in this case with traditional Pakistani instruments plus strings. At a virtuoso level! The challenge to this piece is that it is written in 5/4 time. So there is a swinging 1-2-3 followed by a paired 4-5. Makes the rhythms tricky. Great tune. Amazing performance.
