Kim Waters – This Heart of Mine

Kim Waters is about to drop a new CD called This Heart of Mine on October 25th. Waters is the king of smooth urban jazz and one of the first instrumentalists to really hit big in the quiet storm radio world. As one of the top five best-selling instrumentalists in jazz, Kim Waters has collaborated with everyone from Al Green, Isaac Hayes and Phyllis Hyman to Kenny Lattimore and Teddy Riley and Guy, to name a few.

JazzTimes Magazine says “Waters is simply one of the planet’s best saxophonists” while The Washington Post declares, “Kim Waters is like a romantic pied piper out on a long evening stroll. Kim Waters has had 13 # one singles and over 20 top ten hits during his career.

On This Heart of Mine, Waters plays virtually all the instruments heard on most of the tracks. He is insane in the studio. In addition to winning originals he also does covers of R Kelly’s “Love Letters and J-Z and Alicia Keys’ collaboration “Empire State of Mind.” Waters also does a sublime duet with the Soul Prince, Calvin Richardson. Waters and Richardson will be shooting a video for their duet which Kim wrote called “Am I a Fool.”
