Quote: It's in 6/8 with every second bar accenting as if in 3/4. Think of America in Westside Story. I haven't seen the original score but that seems to be the only time signature that fits.

Seems is the operative word - sorry, it's not in 6/8 - as a drummer (former) I'm particularly cognizant of odd signatures and this theme just does not fit well or easily into any known signature. I have been trying for years now to get a DEFINITIVE answer to this question with no luck. Even posted on a popular drummer's site with no good answer. Anyone know how to ask the composer?
What is complicated about it? See above
Actually this thread should now be moved to the Music forum which I guess didn't exist 5-1/2 years ago
when this was first asked! Hey administrator!
Seems ridiculous in this age of the computer and the internet you can't get a definitive answer to a simple question.
