The Pulse of Entertainment: Kim Waters
Has ‘That Special Touch' on New Album off Shanachie Imprint
(November 1, 2022) - "People say I have that special touch," said
Contemporary Jazz saxophonist Kim Waters about the title of his new album "That
Special Touch" (Shanachie). "It's my 25th record. This time I wrote everything on piano, that's not
how I usually do it. I usually do everything in the studio, but this time I wrote first and then went in the studio."
The first single off "That Special Touch" album is "Joy Dance." The new project features his daughter
Kayla Waters ("That Special Touch") on piano and Raynard Gibson ("If I Was Your Man") on vocals. Kim's
sax sound is fused with Jazz, R&B, Blues and Pop. He is also known for topping the Billboard Top 20 Charts with his music.
"On this record I played most of the instruments, then my daughter came in...we did a duet," said Waters,
who also plays the piano, guitar, flute, and drum program.
A native of Maryland, Kim currently resides in Georgia.
He still performs with one of his brothers, James (bass), whom he formed a band with as a teenager with his other brother
Eric on drums and Cyrus Chestnut in piano. Kim Waters has performed for Isaac Hayes, Phyllis Hyman, Teddy Riley and Guy, and
Gerald Albright to name a few. www.KimWaters.net
