Taylor McFerrin

The son of famed jazz singer and conductor Bobby McFerrin—who’s also the owner of the ’88 surprise hit “Don’t Worry Be Happy”—Taylor McFerrin stepped out of the long shade of his father’s career on his 2014 debut LP Early Riser. Out on the welcome jazztronica home of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label, Early Riser carves into jazz and hip-hop with precise cuts. On “Already There” and “4:00 AM,” McFerrin tries out the contemporary jazz of BADBADNOTGOOD and Thundercat, sewing the tunes with his interstellar work on the Rhodes piano. Meanwhile, on “Place in My Heart,” McFerrin pours out a Björk-like pop hit over a straight-marching rhythm. Though Early Riser was recorded with a good deal of live instruments, McFerrin structures his live set on the computer and mixer. Still, the live date loses no energy, with McFerrin pulling out wild textures and vicious runs from the Rhodes at the center of his workstation.
