Beatboxing at the Blue Note

I've been hearing about these guys for a while, Taylor McFerrin in particular:

Check the Latenight Groove Series next Friday October 14th at the Blue Note for Beatbox Jazz

The Art of Beatbox combined with a Nu Jazz swing makes for the hottest and hippest ticket in town. Led by human beat boxers Baba Israel and Kid Lucky take the lead in this exciting and fresh sound of "jazz fusion" at the legendary Blue Note!

Human beatboxer s in this amazing show consist of Kid Lucky Baba Israel, Yako, Taylor Mcferrin, D-Cross and Chesney Snow. Previous Beatboxer Ent. Events have been called "The real beat generation!" by the Daily News and Timeout NY called the beatboxers in the series "masters in the art of noise."

The raw genius of beatbox on this night will hook up with New York’s own Jason Lindner- "Jason Lindner is a musical universe!" - Chick Corea. "Lindner ranks among the finest all-around pianist-composers of his generation." - Time Out New York. The band will be backed by Tony Escapa on drums and Avishai Cohen on horn whose last record was recently chosen by Ben Ratliff of the New York Times as one of the records of the Sunday Times Playlist..

Expect a blend of live Jazz, funk, Hip Hop with vocal beats and scratches! Beatbox solos and duets, Beatbox and drum duets, a trio made of two beatboxers and trumpet, and all out sessions between four beatboxers and the whole band! If you can imagine it, it will happen on this night!
