Groove o' the day: Al Foster - Rated X

As promised-- or hinted at, rather-- here is Al Foster's hip and unusual groove from Miles Davis's Rated X, from the record Get Up With It:

As you can hear, the 1 and the 4 of the first measure are accented slightly; he may also do a slight open hihat at the beginning.

Listen to Rated X at its Daily Best Music In The World entry from a few days ago.
