It been a while since I've heard Take Five, but I'm listenng to Living in the Past right now, and it does sound like 123-123-12-12 or 10/8 as a compound meter. Now do Barbara and I another favor and listen to All You Need is Love. I hear it as 7/4+7/4+8/4+7/4. What do you say?
Oh, and I do stand corrected. Paul Desmond.
