Taylor McFerrin – The Antidote

This beautiful track comes with the soul and with guest vocals by Nai Palm, he couldn’t have gone too wrong. The song fits her style gracefully and the whole piece just flows together smoothly.  McFerrin puts her voice to a bit of a different use than how it’s used in her main project, Hiatus Kaiyote. The melodic choices are different but still have that jazz/soul feel of her background. When the phase shifted electric bass riff drops I can’t help but move. Still makes me think ‘Dont Worry, Be Happy’ even though the music stylistically is completely different from his father’s music. Any sort of good music makes me happy.

 

The rest of the album is just as fantastic. Stylistically it ranges from a down tempo electronic feel to fast paced, complex jazz/funk.  A well crafted piece of art.
