About The Baylor Project

Steeped in the heart and soul of jazz, Marcus and Jean Baylor’s highly anticipated collaboration showcases the grace and glory, versatility and virtuosity of a truly extraordinary musical union. Marcus, a St. Louis native, is widely recognized as a three-time Grammy-nominated musician and former drummer of the jazz quartet the Yellowjackets. A world-class drummer, Marcus’ creativity and innovative storytelling ability expose his seasoned improvisation and musicianship. Jean, a “Jersey Girl,” made her mark as one-half of platinum recording duo Zhane, and has since reestablished herself in jazz music. With her agile mezzo-soprano range, Jean combines a fresh, whimsical approach to phrasing with clever musicality resulting in soul-hugging vocal purity. 

Their combined musicianship is unmatched. Their dynamic performance will raise you up and inspire you to clap along with them, as they entice your ears with a swinging mid-tempo tune. They utilize sincerity and maturity far beyond their years to deliver ballads with storied grace and elegance, as well as grit. And what’s more, Marcus and Jean have the uncanny ability to bridge the gap between generations. They are relatable, they are virtuosic, and for these reasons they captivate packed houses and sold out audiences. Visit The Baylor Project's Website
