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 2018 GRAMMY® Awards (for “Best Jazz Vocal Album” and “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for their single “Laugh And Move On”), “The Journey” debuted at number 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. Released around Valentine’s Day in February of last year, “The Journey” has as much to do with the The Baylor’s 16 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.
