What is The Baylor Project?
A husband. A wife. An astonishing debut album: "The Baylor Project." Marcus and Jean Baylor’s highly anticipated collaboration is deeply rooted in the heart and soul of Jazz. Their first single, More In Love uses a rhythmic, soulful melody to tell the story of unexpectedly pure love growing richer every day. As a couple, Marcus and Jean strive to infuse their music with the best of themselves. Their music reflects their every day lives. More in Love offers beautiful instrumentation and inventive improvisation while refusing to sacrifice the most vital elements: the heart, the soul.
Marcus and Jean have performed with artists of the highest caliber including Yellowjackets, Kenny Garrett, and Buster Williams, among others. With "The Baylor Project", this remarkable duo forges a distinct path. They make their own imprint. This album pays homage to a wide range of their musical influences spanning Jazz, Blues, Soul and Gospel creating an eclectic sound of feel good music. But make no mistake: it is their distinct sound that makes it "The Baylor Project." Soulful. Melodic. Creative Improvisation. Authentic. Jazz Music.
