Take Five is obvious. However the Blue Rondo is extremely tenuous, and not something I would call "blatant" at all. The time signature's not even the same, and that's the most prominent feature of Brubeck's piece. Might Uematsu have been inspired by it? Sure. But it's no homage or even an attempt to reimagine.
