Put it all together and you have something Tony himself came up with it as far as I can can tell that's a cool quasi latin/swing hybrid feel thing.
Thanks Stan, I got the ride, snare and the hat on the 'and'. The bass drum work is whats different & interesting.. I think he's moving the accents around in the tune. Yes?
