You know Brubeck was from Concord? His dad had a ranch near town. I think they even have a park named after him. His first albums had Bill Smith playing clarinet. Bill came to the U of W to teach when I was there and a few years later ran into him on TM residence courses.

Typical Dave Brubeck, a jazz innovator. But that's a tough beat to dance with. But Earth, Wind and Fire in the 1970s created a different soul sound by using 6/4 time and 6/8 time. The sound is more understandable with a slow funk. But it's difficult to play, especially when the musicians have to dance in unison for a choreographed performance.
