is this a hidden 1?
 
This is Rodger Biwandu playing at a Yamaha stall. He's playing a tune by Weather Report called Palladium. Is he hiding the 1 or is this just clave,played really well?

What exactly is a hidden "one"? Roger is playing basically a songo groove in 3-2 clave, and since we're talking about Cuban-based music, the "one" is rarely emphasized.

I guess I was looking for the emphasis on the 1, and did'nt recognize the songo.The original song has a very defined 1 so this just sounded like a samba sort of groove shifted backwards by 2 measures.. thanks for the clarification

I swear this guy is on this forum... Or am I imagining things? Great drummer - he's even been lucky enough to play with Zawinul himself!

Oh Yea!!

Roger Biwandu IS a hidden 1! A hidden gem of a talent! Not alot of familiarity with RB out there. He's one of those drummers that's not flashy and not very well known.

But man! He's got skills! Thanks aydee! ;-)


Nice find...Play On!
