    The musicians probably walked off because 1) they couldn’t play in 5/4. 2) any excuse to go smoke one

    “Song” is often used for instrumental compositions. In fact, it is much more common way to describe them, and even musicians use “song” in this way.

    Even Dave Brubeck called Take Five and Blue Ronda a la Turk “songs.”

    Actually, there are vocal versions of this song. I have a live album of Dave Brubeck and Carmen McRae. She sings several of his famous instrumentals. I think the album was Live at the Basin Street East.

    Dudley Moore was sitting in with Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem on The Muppet Show when he said “Take five” to the band and they started up the Brubeck classic. Moore had to get the band to stand down while he introduced a machine that was going to play with him as he sang. During one of the breaks in the song, Dr. Teeth muttered, “It ain’t got that swing when it’s played by a thing.”
