An example of the rhythm used in «Unsquare Dance""Unsquare Dance»
is an iconic musical piece written by the American jazz composer Dave Brubeck
in 1961.
Written in 7/4 time, the piece is a typical example of Brubeck's exploration of
time signatures. According to Brubeck, it was written during a single trip from
his home to the recording studio, and was recorded the very same day.
Based on a Blues form, the piece is driven by a strong bass figure,
with percussion provided primarily by the rim of the snare drum and hand claps.
It combines duple and triple meter.

Third measure with initial theme development (time 0:22 to 0:34).

The piano enters with descending phrases crossing the 7/4 rhythm.
The main theme then develops initially without left accompaniment and then
with a characteristic figure based around the use of tenths. A drum solo using
rim shots follows, then a restatement of the theme and a distinctive conclusion.
The band's laughter at the end of the piece illustrates the spontaneity of the
recording and the camaraderie of the band. According to one music teacher, «Brubeck calls it 'Unsquare Dance' and it ends with 'Turkey in the Straw' which
is as 'square' as you can get!"At the very end, right after referencing «Turkey in the Straw», the song cleverly «es the well known musical couplet
known in some circles as shave and a haircut... two bits, with the last note
being the seventh in the measure.
«Unsquare Dance"was initially included on the album Time Further Out,
and even became a hit single, peaking at #74 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
Brubeck has since arranged the piece for orchestra. Although it is rarely
covered, Brubeck has recently endorsed an arrangement and recording by British
pianist and composer Paddy Milner.
