Justin Lee Schultz: Gruv Kid
14-year-old Native South African Justin Lee Schultz, the child prodigy who plays multiple instruments and was musically knighted by Quincy Jones, is back with the title track from his debut Shanachie release Gruv Kid. If you’re looking for tempo and something perfect for those “outdoors” moments this is the song. His album has been on the music charts most of 2020, and with this new single 2021 will continue to expose Justin to new audiences. The best thing about this song and project is it shows Jazz has a future because his early teen peer group will be following Justin. You can hang with the 'Gruv Kid’ afternoons when you tune into the S.O.U. L. of Jazz with Jamal Ahmad daily 2p-7p on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
