Washington, Dec 6: Jazz legend Dave Brubeck, the man behind the famous song 'Take Five,' died in Connecticut on Wednesday. He was 91.
Brubeck's manager said the music icon passed away due to heart failure, while on his way to a cardiology appointment, TMZ.com reported.
Brubeck was a living legend - having written several jazz pieces like 'In Your Own Sweet Way,' 'Blue Rondo a la Turk,' and 'The Duke.'
The Dave Brubeck quartet recorded 'Take Five' way back in 1959.
