Back in the day, it was said that the band “laid down a fat groove”. It’s a concept that was carried over from jazz, where the rhythm section would build a bedrock foundation sturdy enough for the lead musician to improvise freely over it.
You aren’t going to find a fatter groove than the one in “Evil Ways”, even though Carlos Santana’s guitar solo at Woodstock (44 years ago – yikes!) isn’t up to his usual standards.
