I've heard the same term used for bass playing, once again, when it follows what the rest of the rhythm is doing.

    Thought it was worth mentioning since there's a lot of discussion of ahead of/behind/on the beat and I don't think "playing in the pocket" exclusively refers to any of those things.
    I don't think it has anything to do with where one sits on the beat either. I've always thought of 'playing in the pocket' as the sticking to a simple, repeatable groove that allows the rest of the band to know where they can fuck with what they'll play. They know where the drummer is gonna go because the drums are consistent and simple - predictable, allowing them to fill the gaps how they choose. It's a find the approach and stick-to-it kinda thing.
