SOURCE: Published: | 830 views
Drummer and St. Louis native Marcus Baylor is coming home for the holidays to perform on Thursday, December 27 at the Bistro at Grand Center, 3536 Washington Ave.

St. Louis jazz fans will recognize the address as the home of Jazz at the Bistro, of course, and Baylor (pictured) knows the room well, having played there several times during his decade as drummer for the jazz-fusion band Yellowjackets. He left that gig a couple of years ago to concentrate on developing a solo career and collaborating with his wife, singer Jean Baylor, though he subsequently has done some work with Kenny Garrett, Cassandra Wilson, and others, too.

“The Son of St. Louis Reunion," as it is being billed, also will feature Jean Baylor on vocals and keyboardist Shedrick Mitchell, whose credits include work with bassist Christian McBride, trumpeter Russell Gunn, harmonica player Gregoire Maret, R&B singer Maxwell, and the late Whitney Houston.

Though the show is not a presentation of Jazz St. Louis, Baylor is sticking with the Bistro's usual set times of 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door and are on sale now via Metrotix.
