Joe Morello – Take Five

Got up nice and early to transcribe Joe Morello’s drum solo on Take 5. This is taken from the legendary recording of Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – 1959.

Joe was one of the first drummers to explore odd time signatures and this album was seen a revolutionary as it explored many different time signatures.

1959 was a big year for Jazz music as some of the most influential albums were released, including:

Kind of Blue – Miles Davis

Giant Steps – John Coltrane

The Shape of Jazz to Come – Ornette Coleman

Portrait in Jazz – Bill Evans Trio

Mingus Ah Um – Charles Mingus

These were all landmark albums, changed the way Jazz was perceived and setting a new standard of creativity.
