I'm looking for examples of tresillo patterns that use a swing eighth division. The Stromae song "Bienvenue chez moi" does this to great effect, and I'm curious about other instances. Thanks for any tips.
The first one that comes to mind is "Hey Pocky A-Way" from 1974 album Rejuvenation by The Meters. Drumset opens the track with a swung 332. It gets more interesting later on, when a guitar riff suggests 33433 and a piano riff, 233--and all this together. Enjoy!
As I mentioned in another discussion you initiated, "'hyper clave' pattern (32 = 10x3 + 2) & Stromae," "extended" tresillo patterns occur frequently in McCoy Tyner's comping with the John Coltrane Quartet, especially on "Resolution" and "Pursuance" (from A Love Supreme). There may be examples of regular ol' tresillos there as well.
BUT, a classic and straightforward example of what you're looking for would be "String of Pearls":
