Now we are onto the 50th anniversary of the year 1968 (no longer 1967). I realized (this week, thinking about it) that the watershed/pivotal Rolling Stones song, that marked that band's emergence out of the Psychedelic era -- "Sympathy for the Devil" -- has a Brasilian/Samba-influenced rhythm. I really liked hearing an earlier take (filmed in the studio by Jean-Luc Godard) with a more sparse arrangement. In that, I believe, Keith Richards plays bass guitar - and it sounds great. 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, (3) : || I see in the Wikipedia article, there is definite mention of the rhythm: Sympathy for the Devil - Wikipedia Charlie Watts is quoted: a jazz Latin feel in the style of Kenny Clarke would have played on "A Night in Tunisia" – not the actual rhythm he played, but the same styling. And the Jagger quote that follows is really important, too.
