The Unsung: The Meters

By MIK DAVIS,

Take a moment – Count rhythmically from 1 to 4. Now count, the same pattern but put an "AND" in the spaces between the numbers. Finally, count that same pattern once more but put the emphasis on any "AND" you like. You now not only understand syncopation but you can harness the endless possibilities of music weaving in and out of the beat.










The FIRST Christmas bonus

By ROBERT ST. JOHN,

Last night we held our 32nd annual manager’s Christmas dinner. There were 30 people seated at the table for our once-a-year steak and ribs dinner.

We’ve held the dinner at Donanelle’s for the past 15 years. It’s my favorite dive bar/steakhouse. It’s my management team’s favorite dive bar/steakhouse, too.
