This song is very obviously inspired by Dave Brubeck’s Take Five, he is a huge inspiration for me and I like to call him “The Gentleman of Jazz”. This piece is part 1 of an aural and visual journey which tries to describe my adventures travelling on the No. 6 Subway Train up and down Manhattan, my futile attempts to stay awake late at night after a gig downtown as i traveled home to Tove’s apartment up on 110th Street. I would ride the train all night, waking up at the Bronx or on the lower east side, never @ my stop.
