Could This Be The Best Drum Groove Ever?


One of the most iconic drum grooves in history is the halftime shuffle on Toto's hit song, "Rosanna", performed by the late, great Jeff Porcaro.

The internet had blessed us with this isolated drum track (along with isolated previews of all of the other instruments) from the original 1982 recording session. Sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy one of greatest drum beats ever recorded.


Here's Jeff Porcaro breaking down the Rosanna drum groove and giving a little history lesson about the source and inspiration:

  • Why is their pirated audio on this post? Does loopsloft have rights to the original Toto music tracks?

  • Massive! As was everything he played. His contributions to Tommy Bolin’s ‘Teaser’ record, to this day still, are the standard guide to all rock musicians who topped the charts in the mid 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s… In his teen’s he influenced a generation!

  • 1. Choosing to decline the free loop pack nearly crashed my browser.

    2. There doesn’t seem to be any mention of the source for this video. Credit to: Christian James Hand, Mark Thompson and 100.3FM KSWD The Sound

    3. Uncredited use of other people’s content as marketing material is pretty lame dude.

  • This would´ve been awesome to listen to if there weren´t two guys talking over the ghost notes and finer drumming. I came, I heard nothing, I left. (Shortly after writing this comment.)
