Oddly enough... this episode of New Sounds features music in odd meters -- such unconventional groupings as 7/8, 11/8 or 5/4. Among on the selections on tap is Dave Brubeck's celebrated "Take Five" (penned by Paul Desmond), a piece steeped in the West Coast-cool school and bound by the use of the jaunty 5/4 meter. Other works dip into ethnic traditions, such as the lopsided 7/8, 9/8, or 11/8 time signatures of Kocani Orkestar (from the Republic of Macedonia). And globe-trotting percussionist Glen Velez (pictured) has created dozens of works which build layer upon layer of complex rhythm using the most basic of tools.
