Son of polyphonically adept jazz vocalist Bobby McFerrin, Taylor McFerrin has carved out a niche as a smooth R&B crooner who’s equally as facile with his vocal tics and falsetto while producing tracks that skitter and ooze with panther stealth. Taylor’s 2016 LP, Early Riser, serves as a seduction aid with its laid-back tempos, crisp beats, Vaseline-lensed synth washes, and McFerrin’s pillow-talk-toned singing. Seattle’s SassyBlack offers similar vibes, but from a lesbian sci-fi nerd’s perspective. Fellow local Noel Brass Jr., the Afrocop and Select Level keyboardist, just released his debut solo LP, Broken Cloud Orchestra. It’s a profound exploration of tranquil ambience, its 11 tracks twinkling like jewels in deep space. (Disclosure: I wrote liner notes for it.)
