Steeped in the heart and soul of jazz, the visionary husband and wife duo, Marcus and Jean Baylor, recently released their highly anticipated debut album, "The Journey". This unique collaboration showcases the grace and glory, versatility and virtuosity of a truly extraordinary musical union.
“The Journey”, (released in Feb. 2017) debuted at # 8 on the Billboard Jazz Chart, and has received worldwide acclaim from sources ranging from All About Jazz to the The New York Times, who selected “The Journey” as “First Jazz Pick of the Week”, stating that “The Baylors’ buoyant, convivial music unites gospel, jazz and R&B."
As the children of Pastors, Marcus and Jean’s musical roots were planted deep within the church, and it was there that the road was paved for the influence of gospel, blues, soul, and jazz to make it’s mark.
A world-class drummer, Marcus’ creativity and innovative storytelling ability expose his seasoned improvisation and musicianship. Jean, with her agile mezzo-soprano range, combines a fresh, whimsical, approach to phrasing with clever musicality and vocal purity.
Released around Valentine’s Day, “The Journey” has as much to do with the The Baylor’s 15 years of loving one another as it does with Black History Month. Their first feature recording together embodies the true spirit of love while also paying homage to their musical roots and those of the African American experience.
“The Journey is a true reflection of our childhood, the musical and cultural influence of the African American Church, and all the things that have become a part of our creative fabric from then until now,” says Jean.
Jean (vocals) and Marcus (drums) will be joined on stage by: Terrahn Brewer (piano); Dezron Douglas (bass); and Keith Loftis (tenor & soprano sax).
