Saxophonist Kim Waters has made a career of writing timeless anthems with insatiable grooves, undeniable hooks and memorable melodies that combine the best of jazz, R&B, funk and soul. This formula has catapulted him to the top of the charts time and time again and has made him one of the biggest selling saxophonist to date. JazzTimes Magazine has declared, “Waters is simply one of the planet’s best saxophonist, Instantly recognizable for his keen melodic sensibilities and soulful approach to his saxophone, The Washington Post has likened Waters to “A romantic pied piper out on a long evening stroll.” The prolific saxophonist, composer, and producer has enjoyed a career of longevity that is rare. Waters’ Zen-like approach to his life and artistry is simple. “My motto is to try and live in a way where I am not stressing about anything. What’s going to be is going to be. I strive to be happy because life is short.” It is with this pointed and in the moment approach that Waters’ delivers his best solo effort yet, WHAT I LIKE. The album is dedicated to his inspirations – Mom and Dad(Brenda and James Waters), Dana Waters(Wife) and his lovely daughters Kayla and Kimberly. WHAT I LIKE showcases Waters’ compositional prowess and features seven dynamic originals and three re-workings of hits by Bruno Mars, Maxwell and The Isley Brothers.
