Went through this thread...lot of videos deleted by uploader or
This is Jeff at his best and near the end of his life...only TOTO
could write a fusion-esq tune and still keep it groovin' with a
"commercial edge"--we hear Jeff's new phase of fills. Mike's
bass is SO deep and low-end (love this)...@3:24 TOTO just goes into
this crazy passionate feel and then pops out the other side.
For those interested, there is a good write up on the Kingdom of Desire
session below video. Some have disputed the gear choices (snares) used,
but I will take the reporter at his word.Kingdom of Desire session:http://jeffporcaro.blogspot.com/2006/12 ... l-mlx.html
This guy does a pretty good job at covering Jake...his hats need more emphasis and
deeper edge. Snare is way too thin, but toms and bass drums kill.
