Heres a jazz drummer who wields all sorts of subtleties. His swing is flecked with funk; his groove provides nuanced polyrhythms. Hes been the fire behind his more visible brother, Marcus, but lately hes been making his own moves. The shared lingo he and his cohort are refining has a knock em sock em feel, and its physicality is a rush. This weekends outfit is a particularly impressive group (Luis Perdomo, Logan Richardson) and hearing them pass the ball around should be a blast.
