The Pulse of Entertainment: Kim Waters Says Shake Your
Body Down with New Album ‘Shakedown'
(June 30, 2020)- "My desire is to put a smile on their faces," said
saxophonist Kim Waters about the release of his new album titled "Shakedown" (Shanachie).
He explained it's all about having a good time shaking it down to the ground. "With everything going on, everybody is
confused...I hope it's a great inspiration."
"Shakedown" is Kim's 24th album. The Smooth Jazz sax
player is also a composer, pianist and music producer who is ranked among the top five instrumentalists in Jazz. A Maryland
native currently residing in Georgia, Waters is known for his dissent Contemporary Jazz sax playing. He is known for taking
Hip-Hop music, R&B, Reggae and Pop genres and twisting them into his style of Contemporary Jazz. On "Shakedown"
he reinvents Ella Mai's hit "Boo'd Up."
"Every one that we do, we have a little spirituality because
we give of ourselves," Kim stated about his album's creative process.
The 10-track "Shakedown" project,
was created while he was at his grand piano and not in the studio, a first time, and is dedicated to his wife Dana and his
twins Kimberly and Kayla. Kim Waters was a prodigy child playing the violin at the age of eight and then at age 13 he changed
to the sax because he said he was teased about playing the violin by other boys. He has a long history with his current label
Shanachie Entertainment since the release of "Love's Melody" in 1998. This is his 13th album at the Shanachie imprint.
"I want to tell them to stay strong, and let this (album) give them a little break," Kim concluded. www.KimWaters.net
