This is my second attempt to write a tune in 7/4. The first one was cool but somehow unfinished. The driving rhythm of this tune was something that I hoped would impel the musicians to "light it up" when playing it, and I think they did. Nevertheless, when it came time to write an ending to the tune, I ended up with one in 5/4. Hard to avoid it, apparently.
