I had the pleasure of hanging with drummer Brad Webb recently at Nextbop @ Art of Cool's Jazz for the Masses Party during this last SXSW. Webb, who plays in saxophonist Brad Walker's quintet, is cool people and has a vibrancy in his nature that translates well to his style of play at the drums. Walker's entire quintet has a chill vibe to them that doesn't drag deep into the somber weeds, so it would make sense that Webb's own project, Brad Webb's Making Faces, would have something close to that same feel. Webb's Making Faces EP released late last year conveys this.
