Take 3 is my imagining of what the traditional Christmas carol We Three Kings might have sounded at Christmas time around the household of the great jazz pianist Dave Brubeck. For those not familiar with his material, one of Brubeck’s best known pieces is Take 5, a piece written in the somewhat odd time signature 5/4 time. Much of Take 3 is also in 5/4. Coincidence? I think not. 🙂

    We Three Kings has proven to be another superb piece of artistry by a man who has truly mastered his skills as bona fide professional! A master at his trade who has the ability to musically/architecturally rejuvenate and enhance classics from the past in a truly complimentary manner! Classics which, although stood the test of time, they left room to prove that a new coat of paint would neither deprive nor distract from the original artist’s concept. Great going Bob!
