What we're reading: 50 years ago today in music

From The Muse in Music comes news that on August 18, 1959 Dave Brubeck and his Quartet recorded Take Five,

"an eternally cool sonic tonic for an endless summer night. Desmond left his royalties from the song, the first million-selling jazz single in Billboard’s Hot 100 history, to the American Red Cross."
