Peter Webb looks outward with 'Liminal Space'
Each of these numbers is filled with spacious melodies, and a slow pace driven by Webb's subdued and strangely down-to-earth analysis of his relationship with the surrounding world.
Most folks dialed into the local music scene will recognize Peter Webb as the saxophone player towering over Faun and A Pan Flute. However, Webb's debut solo album, Liminal Space shows off of a more personal side of his moody, acoustic songwriting, downplaying the edgy abstractions of his other musical endeavors. Throughout Liminal Space, songs such as "Spain," "Jared," and "Trees" are filled with spacious melodies, and a slow pace driven by Webb's subdued and strangely down-to-earth analysis of his relationship with the surrounding world.
Indeed each of the album's eight songs (there are 10 songs on the CD) builds upon Webb's love for the song itself. Some of these numbers predate his time playing with Faun, Hello Ocho, Mediocre Machine et al, offering a holistic look at just what he's capable of pulling off with a guitar, his voice, and a solid team backing him up.
On Friday night (Nov. 13), Webb leads a cast of players including John Gregg (drums), Jared Pepper (Rhodes), and Adam Mincey (bass) at a house show celebrating both the impending arrival of the Liminal Space LP, and the temporary five-acre plot of land he calls home — it's on the Beltline, so it's falling prey to condo mania soon. 845 Delmar Avenue S.E. is the place.
Free. Music starts at 9:30 p.m., and the Facebook invite page promises some foods, some booze, some stuff to look at, a fire, and a good time.
