The Baylor Project feat. Jean Baylor & Marcus Baylor

Wife and husband duo vocalist Jean and pianist Marcus Baylor sound like home, not the home one has but the home one visits for the holidays. Not that they sound like Christmas, though that season does have the best songs, but that they sound like communion. They sound like the melding of travels from the same original hearth. The players the y have amassed on their upcoming album, The Journey, give an extra bit of panache to this group's reworking of Baptist hymns, roosty original compositions, and that flavor or jazz and R&B that always manages to satisfy. It's a rich album from a pair who perform with a lushness with inventiveness that doesn't reinvent the wheel, for the wheel is far too elegant for reinvention.
