Great reference list- I'll have to listen to a bunch of these. Lowdown's groove took me a long time to understand and play, since at the time I studied it I was not drumming much. But I love the steady hi hat beat with its permutations and little accents. For Lido, I wonder if that groove is similar to the Rosanna Shuffle with its hat beats and ghosts?
