Artists: Al Jarreau, Take 6 and others Tune: We B Dooinit
This is my second favorite Al Jarreau tune. It can be found on Quincy Jones’ Back on the Block album which is one of the best albums I have ever heard. Promise. This song is brilliant. Just listen to the vocals and enjoy!
I really don’t like tunes that are in five. It just feels weird. I like things that are in four. That’s so much smoother. In this tune, though, it really doesn’t feel strange. It feels right. It swings. Nothing swings in five expect Take Five. I can’t remember the first time that I heard Take Five. I can remember the first time I really noticed Take Five. I was in college and I was listening to Al Jarreau sing it. It was wonderful. Soon I had to hear the original.
