I’ve had the privilege of experiencing Jean Baylor perform in a number of different circumstances—with her husband Marcus Baylor, as a special guest for groups like the Robert Glasper Experiment, Naughty By Nature, and Marcus Strickland’s Twi-Life, and on recordings under the Zhané namesake with Renee Neufville. Each and every performance has taken me over the top for the raw and stunning beauty in her voice that Baylor has crafted into a unique gift for the world.

Father's Song

 

As we’re approaching Father’s Day, The Baylor’s have created yet another gift of music, this one dedicated to her late father, Rev. Dr. Dennis E. Norris Sr. Take a listen to the track below and be sure to catch Jean out the next time you see her name on a bill (or if you’re lucky, as a surprise guest at the next show you’re at)!
