Justin Young sounds utterly natural when he plays, as if his extraordinary saxophone talent never needed formal training. But those mellifluous lines of soulful notes come through years of study, training and commitment to his love of music, as well as a constant desire to move forward.
“Groove Magic” is the first single/title track from Justin’s new album.

Saxophonist Justin Young’s new single “Justin Groove” is driven by groove, funky sax lines and pure excitement in Justin’s horn arrangements! It’s the first single/title track from Young’s upcoming new album. For over a decade, Justin has put out quality Smooth Jazz albums, but his new single, “Justin Groove,” is ready to prove to the world that his music is undeniably great! Working with the best in the industry, Justin co-wrote the song with Chris ‘Big Dog’ Davis who met Justin on the Capital Jazz Cruise a few years ago.
Davis writes “I call him “Beib” after Justin Bieber!! Eager and excited as he still is now. It took some years before we actually came together and worked together. Justin Groove is about the Groove and Funky Sax lines and melodic structure. Pure excitement you hear in Justin horns arrangements. Great work Justin!!”
“I wrote “Justin Groove” during one of the most difficult times of my life. I left my corporate job of more than 11 years when I was no longer inspired to work there. I was just a number. I turned in my badge knowing all I had was the support of my family and trust in God that He would bring me something better. The following day, I locked myself in the studio and wrote this song. I picked up the phone and asked Chris Davis to turn my vision into a reality!”
