O’s Notes: Smooth jazz saxophonist Justin Young was born in the Detroit metro area and has R&B in his roots. He is also an engineer with an MBA. Young has balanced music along with his career at Boeing from L.A. to Oklahoma City and now in Seattle. He breathes a lot of soul into his sax and brings a wealth of contemporary jazz talent with him on“Blue Soul, his latest release that was over 3 years in the making. Jackiem Joyner (sax), Ricky Lawson (d), Alex Al (b) and Daryl Dixon (g) are just a few of the talented musicians who help make this CD come alive. “India”, “Nothin’But Love”, “Jazz Along The 101” and the title track are sure winners in a set that will thrill smooth jazz fans.
