#8 Apt 33 Again - The Ruff Pack (circa 2013)

The drummer in this clip is Daru Jones. He’s also Jack White’s (The White Stripes) drummer. He has the unique approach and skill to find that in-between-strict-adherence-to-the-math…vs. swing. It’s a funk all to its own. Notice how you’ll hear multiple interpretations of the space between the notes from each section of the trio. It almost hurts your brain. It’s an incredibly untapped universe, I believe. And just when you think no one on stage is paying attention…things are getting “sloppy”…bam: locked in on the ‘a’ of 4 for the groove takedown. Amazing.

Enjoy!
