“Baptized” in music before he was born, Marcus Young experienced the sound of music at an early age. He was raised in an environment surrounded by music under the influence of his father, Steven Young, a music teacher and an accomplished musician. It’s no surprise that Marcus is a master at playing multiple instruments. Marcus is playing out what he was born to do – deliver pure soulful melodic and inspirational songs infused with jazz rhythms. That’s not to say this young singer, songwriter, composer and musician from Fort Washington, MD, follows any kind of formula. “Groove Jazz” so he says.

Marcus H Mitchell is not only a rising saxophone star but is also CEO and President of 24th Music, a division of MHM Entertainment Group based in Maryland. The youngest independent executive to be on the voting committee for the Grammy Awards he is about to release his latest CD, the excellent ‘R & R – Rest & Relaxation’. It follows on from his 2005 debut ‘Jumpin’ and is a classy eleven track collection of fresh urban jazz sounds that is epitomized by the tune ‘Just Groovin’. With a title that pretty much sums up what Mitchell does throughout the album it is replete with his own brand of edgy smooth jazz and, although rest and relaxation may not entirely be what Mitchell is all about, the smoky title track, the chilled out ‘Deep Concentration’ and finally ‘Summer Breeze’ all demonstrate that he knows mellow urban jazz.
