I ‘m gonna try posting in a more organised manner starting with a series of articles noted as “Pocket Practice”. This will be dedicated to records that are delightful examples of what we call “playing deep in the pocket”. You can playalong with them or simply have a focused listen and get inspired.
Post no.1 is again about ?uestlove and his band The Roots. It is a collaboration with the singer/songwriter, Betty Wright. Every track has a certain vibe from start to finish and the drums follow that throughout the record. A musically perfect example of loose, breathy and -above all- patient timekeeping. The production is awesome too.
