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.
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.
