If you’re in the Memphis International Airport and need a change of scenery or perhaps some artistic inspiration, check out Ephraim Urevbu’s paintings in the connectors between concourses A and B, as well as B and C. The Nigerian born artist who now calls Memphis home portrays such subjects as drummers from his homeland to bluesmen of his new hometown with an intensity of color and a style that borders on the Modern with hints of Impressionism and Cubism.

If, to go along with Urevbu’s eye candy, your ears need a treat, take a
walk down the B concourse to Rhythm’s Café & Bar. Located just
across the aisle from gate 36, the lounge hosts singer Marcus Scott on
Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays. After a canceled flight left me
stranded for an additional five hours recently, Scott helped salve my
spirit with covers of tunes from Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye, Stevie
Wonder, and Al Green.
