ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Justin Klunk has emerged as one of the leading new faces of smooth jazz. His high-driven, electrifying sax playing is getting the attention of many industry professionals not the least of which is Ariana Grande who has Justin on her recent U.S. tour. His new EP features original melodies with plenty of groove and foot tapping R&B."
-David Benoit

"I've known Justin for years now, and I've had the pleasure of watching him grow into a very seasoned young saxophonist with a fresh, new perspective and point of view on the horn--you can hear it in every note on this EP. He's a promising new talent on the scene, and I wish him the very best moving forward."
-Dave Koz

SMOOTHJAZZ.COM REVIEW
There’s a major reason saxophonist Justin Klunk’s Twitter and Instagram name is @KlunkFunk - his high octane EP CLARITY is as jammin’ and funky as Smooth Jazz gets! The upbeat tracks pair his powerful sax and horn texturing vibes with the thrust of rhythm and electric guitars, creating an energizing experience and a (literally!) smashing release. Playing and touring with Ariana Grande, Tommy Page and others, he’s also blowing open his solo career with CLARITY!
