    Take Five was the first jazz record I ever bought.

    About 15 years ago, he came to town. After the concert, he was nice enough to sign my Take Five album. He seemed like a pleasant man.

    RIP

    His quartet (with Desmond) is one of my all-time favorite bands, and I have most everything he put out. A huge fan.

    What a sad day.

    His son, Chris, is one hell of a bassist.

    He was the artist who got me into jazz. He will be missed.

    One of the jazz giants of the last century. His music was melodious, accessible and great listening. R.I.P.

    Every worship tune in Heaven is being played in five today.

    I saw Dave a few years ago in his eighties barely able to walk to the Piano playing take five like he was in his twenties at the Detroit Jazz Fest. Great stuff
