I just listened to Take Five on the radio (it was played as an homage of course).

My dad had his albums.. that's how i learned about Dave.. (And for some reason Chad Mitchell.. my dad was a interesting black dude lol)
Jazz goes to College.. Jazz goes to Junior college.. great albums..

Dave's interview on Ken Burn's Jazz was so memorable when he recounted his father introducing him to a black man who was a former slave.. who still had numbers carved into his skin. Dave was one of the first to have an integrated band.. and.. damn his sound was beautiful..
