Monday night at the Triple Door,  Earshot presented Taylor McFerrin as the 2014 Earshot Jazz Festival continues.
The Brooklyn-based producer, composer, pianist, DJ, beatboxer and son of an iconic mentor performs “everything from soft ambient keys, moody guitar riffs and solemn choirs bellowing across shuffles, to spiraling synths arpeggiating into the unknown” (Contactmusic).
Taylor McFerrin released his first LP, Early Riser, in June 2014 on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder record label. Taylor’s musical style is equally influenced by the legends of 60s and 70s soul, the kings of the Modern Beat Generation, Golden Era hip-hop, free-form jazz and electronic music. By playing all of the instruments on his productions, while also relying heavily on sampling and chopping up his live takes, he has found a sound that seamlessly bridges myriad musical worlds and draws the listener into a constantly shifting audio soundscape.
