I could go with that. I really dislike the way the drummer plays it compared to Bruford’s album version.
I like Masteletto.Yeah but if you can't get Bruford... I dunno if that's another bridge Bob has burned.
Also, Bruford was 25 years old when they cut that, can't really expect three old men to compete.
I also think Tony Levin's bass is a bit "polite" compared to John Wetton's original part. But maybe that's what Bob wants now.
13/4 wouldn't be incorrect--but it's not how I would count it because of the feel.
To my ear, it's three groups of three, followed by one group of four...
I think on one level you need to think of it as bars of 13/4, and the G bars at the end as 8/4, because then you realise that it's "just" a 12-bar blues: C / / / F / C / G / / /I "feel" it more like 3-3-2-5.
BTW that's not at all difficult by KCr standards... ]
