The resurgence of Jazz music by natiave born Brooklyn Jazz Soul band Mothers Favorite Child is upon us but not before its creator, Jazz Soul producer Paris Toon, reintroduces himself and his child as only he can . . . through real, raw, Jazz Soul MUSIC. The Paris Toon jazz soul recording project, enigmatically titled, Baptism by Fire, is a portion of a life narrated by Mothers Favorite Child jazz musicians. MFC is and has always been a Brooklyn jazz soul musical collective, whimsically constructed by intuition and nurtured by divine talent. This is a jazz soul movement on a mission to expose truth in sounds and words. TRUTH - minor and major, raucous and romantic, soulful and . . . spiritual.
The man behind the jazz soul music is Paris Toon, producer, lyricist, composer and driving force of all that he engages in. Paris ritualistically defaults to his gut when the time comes to gather jazz musicians and give birth to new jazz songs for jazz festivals. This is the method to his rarely observed madness. Since Mothers Favorite Child is a product of this method, it is only natural that its jazz soul musicians and jazz soul vocalists would be chosen to provide the soundtrack to the more deeply shaded thoughts of Paris Toon, the man. The jazz soul music of the Paris Toon project revolves around the mother of all emotions, Love. As many individuals have experienced, love can fuel so many other emotions and sensations and it can also take many shapes, sometimes making it vulnerable to misinterpretation. Lust, mistrust, admiration, honesty, intensity . . . these are all stops along the way on this journey through a human soul. This is a true Baptism by Fire.

If ever a song could harness the essence of the electromagnetic undertones of a fine female, “Brooklyn Baby” would be a most excellent gesture. - NewSoundNetwork
