Stole it outright, it seems to me.

Excellent. Great to hear this again. It’s not amateurish, just raw!

 QMS's music is AWESOME (imo), and Rick Griffin's Art is ASTOUNDING!!!

Not typography. Can't have typography without type. Lettering Art. By the late Rick Griffin, such a master of the craft that a font was created after his forms, so new kids can indeed execute typography in homage to his style.

6/8, actually. It's the chord progressions that evoke Take 5, not the rhythm. 

 
I hear similarities in the hi-hat, even if it's not the same time signature, but I'm sure it's a pretty common jazz hi hat pattern, so, yeah...

It's calligraphy, not typography.  Come on, man, someone who fancies himself a designer ought to know the difference.

Thank you Businessgypsy.
Rick Griffin was great.
Musically though, I gotta say this sounds like the Allman Brothers before they learned to play their instruments.

Nice track by an under appreciated group of musicians.
I'll add my 2¢ by saying "Cobra" is the better instrumental. It has more "juice"..driving drumwork and a freer guitar by Cippolina.

Some of you folks are too negative. That was a cool solo. I was rapt.  So what if it sounded like Brubeck or whomever? It's called a homage, dudes.  I'd bet that guy was stoned and happy and having one of the times of his life expressing his music. WTF is wrong with you?

Quicksilver flashback - killer, Bill.  How about the Who Do You Love Suite from Happy Trails?  I dare you! {#Cool}
