Yes, Porter & Todd. I hear it now (thanks to the magic of YouTube speed changer).

At the normal speed I was getting tripped up. I was hearing it as two lopsided cycles adding up to 17. This was by counting the first cycle of as 8 and the second cycle as 9 (the way I imagine Odd-Arne heard it). But I mistakenly cut the 1st cycle short.

The thing is, I *felt* it the first few times as a phrase, which turns out to be the 4/4 + 10/8 as Todd describes (with the 10 section being subdivided as 3+3+2+2). Not that I counted it out; it was just a phrase. But I didn't really trust it. Now it makes sense (until someone else comes along and topples the apple cart).

(And for what it's worth, to really break it down in my mind, I worked the whole cycle of 9 as: **1**---2---3---4---**1**-2-3-**1**-2-3-**1**-2-**1**-2-)
