The Baylor Project will bring their unique, jazz, soul and gospel-inspired repertoire to Dazzle for two, invitation-only shows!
Fresh off their debut performance at the iconic North Sea Jazz Festival. The Baylor Project, comprised of world-renowned vocalist Jean Baylor (formerly of the R&B duo Zhane), and critically-acclaimed jazz drummer Marcus Baylor (formerly of jazz icons the Yellowjackets), “is a married couple whose buoyant, convivial music unites jazz, gospel, and R&B,” according to the New York Times!
The Baylor Project will kick off these performances at Dazzle, August 1st located at 1512 Curtis Street. Sets are 6:30pm and 9pm and tickets are $20-$40 depending on seating.
Steeped in the heart and soul of jazz, Marcus and Jean Baylor’s highly anticipated collaboration “The Journey” showcases the grace and glory, versatility and virtuosity of a truly extraordinary musical union. Nominated for two GRAMMY® Awards in 2018 (for “Best Jazz Vocal Album” and “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for their single “Laugh And Move On”), “The Journey” debuted at 1# on the iTunes Jazz Chart and in the Top 10 on the Billboard Jazz Chart. 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. On ”The Journey”, listeners are taken on a comprehensive musical journey that showcases as much versatility as it does virtuosity. 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 resulting in soul-hugging vocal purity. The Baylor’s 16 years of loving one another shines brilliantly throughout their work, and their electric stage presence. 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.
So, come. EXPERIENCE The Baylor Project. And bring someone you love.
