He changes version and style every year...

I'd like to see if he could handle this one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPcHWu6GAnM

Anyway. . . both versions--the Pakistani version and the Tito Puente version--sound pretty cool to me. The Tito Puente version sounds as if the time signature was changed to either 2/4 or 8/4, however (to me, anyway). [I wish skaters would explore the jazz genre more deeply. There's a whole lot more jazz music than just "Take Five" that would be great to skate to, I think. :) ]

Sorry for the double post.

The BBC has a piece on the orchestra that played take five in the video here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-14232594) if anyone would like to watch it. I'm think I might like to buy there album, I liked it so much, so thanks for posting it.

I love it. Someone should suggest it to him, although I picture Takahashi pulsating to the rhythms better.

Well maybe they could have a "Take Five" contest. Every Skater has to come up with a dfferent version and interpret it.

Oooh -- the Tito Puente version is cool... but I do think that the time signature was changed; something isn't quite right about it.

And I think I like the new Popcorn recording much more than the original, which is a surprise.

Denise Biellman could tackle the Muse version of Popcorn. I can't think of any modern ladies with her nerve or willingness to experiment.
