I'll try and put it up here, see what you two docs think....
It's in theTraps issue, too. But the whole idea, again is that it is not just coming up with the groove, but the myriad of ways he inflects it. It sounds to be like he is doing an Elvin here, accenting the 'a' of the ride, and changing up the bass drum accents like you mentioned, really cool stuff. and anayway, what are you going to do to it? That's really the most important part.:)
