I hear where you are coming from. Setting the term "jazz" aside, one thing that I'm not sure about is how the term "groove" is being used here. However, if the term can be applied to any Rush tune at all, songs like Red Sector A and Kid Gloves come to mind as ones where the groove/backbeat was totally essential to the song.

There are so many good Rush tunes with totally unique drum parts.
