To state, to insinuate: “Eight to the Bar” not only states its musical intent but it also insinuates in cloth the rhythmic sounds of blues along with reds, yellows, and greens. The statement is bold in presentation: a red-blue eight dances side-by-side with a green-yellow eight; black notes swing on a white background while a black ground urges differenct instruments to blare forth. The rhythmic insinuation plays among these statements: each color of the dancing eights have eight shades within the same color, eight blocks of notes along with eight blocks of musical instruments line borders where eight prairie points interrupt the flow of notes. Statement and insinuation play off one another.
