That's great!

There used to be an acoustic duo round these parts (Linke & McCants) that did a killer version of "Take Five" on guitar and mandolin. Man I miss those guys.

Sometimes I'll get "Take Five" stuck in my head and it'll stay there for a couple days... can't say that about too many other songs.

I have that as a backtrax......someday I'll play the sax part, which I think would be exceptionally cool, but I'm old like Rico....
I'm not sure If I have any taste.

Bosco, have you ever heard Peter "Madcat" Ruth's version of Take Five? It's a pretty challenging one to learn, but it's not like some Howard Levy overblowing version or a complex chromatic one - just third position diatonic. I need to dig that cd out and work on it again.
