PENTAGON TIME

Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.

Influenced by Dave Brubeck’s tune ‘Take Five’, this piece adopts the same rhythmic pattern with some melodic passages inserted in between bars and the 5/4 groove. The actual 5/4 groove is in itself influenced by Turkish music where this grouping of 3 and then 2 is common. In Pentagon time the solo is rhythmically challenging and may need someone else to play the groove (a teacher?) while the other pianist focuses on the right hand.

If you have a tablet or large-screen mobile phone you can place that device on the music stand of your piano as you you follow the lesson. Stop and rewind as often as needed. Play the movie in full-screen for the best experience.
