Maryland-born saxophonist Kim Waters is a gifted performer known for his romantic, crossover jazz style. Influenced by both bluesy jazz and soulful R&B, Waters debuted in 1989 with Sweet and Saxy. His next several albums, 1991's Sax Appeal, 1993's Peaceful Journey, and 1994's It's Time for Love, found him moving in more of a smooth jazz direction. It was a creative transformation that culminated in 1998's Love's Melody and 1999's One Special Moment. In 2001, Watersdelivered From the Heart, his first of several albums on Shanachie Records that included 2002's Someone to Love You, 2004's In the Name of Love, 2007's You Are My Lady, and his 2008 homage to Marvin GayeI Want You: Love in the Spirit of Marvin. In 2011, Watersclosed out his time with Shanachie with This Heart of Mine, featuring covers of R. Kelly's "Love Letter" and Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind.
