Re: Jeff Porcaro- Ride pattern on "Pamela"
For some reason this week, the tune "Pamela" cued from my playlist and toward the end of the tune (2nd chorus maybe?) Jeff's ride cymbal pattern just NAILED me. It was almost as if that groove yelled, "hey-been here all along, why did you just now notice?"
(It seems every time I hear something he played -another facet of his work shows up real sneaky like....!).
Jeff, for all his rock drummer chops, could swing a ride! He was firmly rooted in jazz, of this I am convinced.
That 2nd chorus to the fade of the tune is just killer!
