wave smoothest groove


The Washington Post said of the smooth saxophonist veteran -  "Kim Waters is like a romantic pied piper out on a long evening stroll".  Kim's one of the leaders in the smooth jazz community.  His tunes are hypnotic, bouncy, fun and sexy.  He's got a groove like no other.  I just loved putting on 'Feels Like Friday Night' over and over.  It's got like a Lionel Richie 90's vibe to it - energetic and catchy.  'Takin' The High Road' has snippets of Prince in it with it's layered grooves of funkiness.  'With Open Arms' is a tribute to his late father in-law and Kim really puts all his love into this slow and memorable tune.  Kim's take on smooth jazz comes from his early days of sneaking into Baltimore jazz clubs when he was 16 and later on the road with R&B artists.  He blends those influences with some uplifting and crafty tracks like 'In The Fast Lane' and 'Hidden Treasure' - both with synth bass, Nile Rodgers inspired guitar rhythms and drum patterns that keeps your head boppin'.  He even does a cool version of British singer Ella Mai's 2018 Grammy Award winner for best R&B song - 'Boo'd Up'.  This album has it all for smooth lovers.  Take your romantic strolls to another level with this collection of heartfelt melodies.
