Normally I'm fairly good with deciphering time signatures. For whatever reason, I draw a blank here. I thought I detected a 5/8 a little bit after the beginning and I believe the majority of the song is in 4/4. Just displaced by half a beat to make it not sound like 4/4. I'm guessing. But what I do know is that those were INSANE polyrhythms!

Wow, good question. Seems like it switched back and forth at times.

That Jay Oliver cat on keys is amazing.

Thanks for sharing

45 seconds to 1 minute 6 seconds, it the bar right before the sax entrance is a 7/8. Though 4/4, it tricks the listener by displacing the song by half of a quarter note but clues back to the 4/4 when Weckl hits the and-of-4 on the base drum at one point. The groove is entered back by a 7/8 just for measure ending the first sax lead. Then as far as I know, until it enters the sax lead again, it's 4/4. I'm probably wrong. I was playing back the video for A LONG TIME.

Time signatures ...

We don't change Time here in Arizona. We're perpetually in Mountain Standard Time Zone Smile

I don't play enough music outside of 4/4, 6/4, 3/4, 6/8 to be of service to those of you who do.

It sounds like straight 4/4 to me. Even the part you are referring to. He just adds some light syncopation to it and it sounds as if he's drifting away from 4/4.
I really enjoyed it.
