#beginquote# I would be very worried if you were a student of mine at college and could not analyse a piece of music. Perhaps ask a fellow student or teacher to help you. However, I have listened to a 30 second clip I found on the internet and from it I could tell that the time signature is 9 over 8 (there are nine quavers in the bar) although I sense there may be time changes throughout. I sense that the 'Blue' may be a reference to the jazz influences (instruments used - typical jazz group - piano, drumkit and solo instrument, in this case sax), and a 'rondo' is a form of music where one main meoldy keeps returning - i.e. theme A, theme B, theme A, theme C, theme A, etc.etc. Hope this helps. #endquote#
