Jeff Porcaro was arguably one of the top professional drummers of the 80s and 90s and best known for his drumming with the band Toto. His iconic shuffle on Rosanna is one of his signature grooves. Here’s the audio of the drum track. I have also included a recording of the original tune. Classic! If you are interested in learning the groove, check out the numerous videos on YouTube.
