Transcription: Joey Baron - Child at Heart

This is one of my favorite pieces of Joey Baron's playing, from Bill Frisell's Where In The World, playing some of the more prodigious snare drum backbeats in jazz. The “hip”, backwards, rhythmically-displaced part during the drum break at measure 41 was always the hokiest part of it to me, but I learned to love it by listening to the record again and again. Somehow it makes more sense to me when he does the same sort of thing again at measure 65.

Transcription begins after 3:40 in the recording.
