* Welcome to Jeff Porcaro: Groove Master!




My first intention was to get the word out! I started this blog years ago in effort to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Jeff’s passing. I was at Jeff’s funeral and that evening went to a Dave Weckl drum clinic. Dave dedicated a shuffle to Jeff…it was moving. I put the following together for the Modern Drummer issue- - August 2002. Much of what was published for that issue by Robyn Flans is similar. I go into much more detail here for those interested.
 

If you are interested in the year-by-year chronology of Jeff's sessions I put together.  HERE

Before Youtube, this was as epic as it got!  This and was the
holy grail of Porcaro video back in the day.
Great action of Jeff in studio!

Jeff laying such a deep pocket.
That light ride cymbal touch and the
opening fill, so simple yet signature Jeff.
