Most of us have this in our collections ....

But how many of us have actually seen it performed??
I attended a drum clinic hosted by Joe Morello, and he was so cool. He played and and spoke about Take 5 with a very good combo. 

I would have loved to have seen the Jazz clubs in Los Angeles in the 50's and 60's. I go to some Jazz clubs now in L.A. But I am sure it's not even close to what you saw. Actually for a big city L.A. Has a pretty lame Jazz scene nowadays. When you went it was the heyday.
I've always enjoyed Desmond's self-deprecating description of his sound on the sax: "like three dry martinis".
