For the jazz situations I play in, there is a lot of call to play Latin/jazz. OK with me. I decided to try to study up and got the Oscar Stagnaro book/CD, which is very helpful. The first couple of rhythmic figures, I can already do. The third, you start playing across the "one," but it's just a two-bar figure so you're back again soon. The fourth, and beyond - ha, the "one" pretty much goes away. You're just playing across it for many bars on end. Nice! But not always easy. Comments welcome.
