Nights on Blue Bayou: City Soundscapes
Producer, musician and beatboxer Taylor McFerrin will kick off the new outdoor concert series Nights on Blue Bayou: City Soundscapes today. The son of vocalist Bobby McFerrin, Taylor melds hip-hop with jazz and neo-soul, and theres a smooth, ambient vibe to his sound. Rooted in 1960s R&B, Taylor is a one-man band, putting together keyboards, synthesizers, samples, vocals and beatboxing to create his own signature sound. Youll hear something new from McFerrin just dont expect to hear Bobbys Dont Worry, Be Happy! The poor boy probably heard enough of that particular tune growing up. Upcoming Nights on Blue Bayou: City Soundscapes performers include Sona and DeKam vs. Nalepa. 7 p.m. The Sabine-to-Bagby Promenade on Buffalo Bayou.
