Paul Desmond’s Take Five made famous by Dave Brubeck in his 1959 recording is the biggest selling Jazz single in history and is one of my all time favourite jazz standards. It sounds as fresh today as when it was first recorded.

It’s hard to beat but I heard this cover of it on Desert Island discs as the opener from Glaswegian Pakistani poet and artist Imtiaz Dharker. I would’\t go as far as to say it was in any way superior to the masterful original but it’s certainly entertaining. I bring you Sachal Studios Orchestra’s sitar rich take on Take Five. (You’re gonna thank me for this, I promise.)
Take it away boys…
