Groove o' the day: Ignacio Berroa 12/8

Another funk Afro 12/8 groove, played this time by Ignacio Berroa, on his record Codes, on the tune Woody'n You. From the intro:

As you can probably see he's playing rumba clave on the cowbell. The hihat foot part is not present on the recording; I've included it to emulate the shekere, which is played. What he plays in the first measure is the foundation groove— practice that by itself, too.

Ignacio is on tour with Chick Corea right now, which you'll want to catch if you can.
