Closing in on three decades as one of Smooth Jazz’s most “sure thing” romantic hit makers, saxophonist Kim Waters celebrates 20 years as part of Shanachie Entertainment’s urban-leaning roster with his latest in the pocket gem WHAT I LIKE.

With a title like that, Waters gives his fans insight into what’s tickling his sensual yet funky soul fancy these days – and delightfully and perhaps a bit surprisingly, it’s a bit less dreamy balladry and more fresh, buoyant and danceable funk on both alto and soprano.

Waters has long been a master at re-imagining pop and R&B hits as urban jazz jams. He strikes gold here once again finding the tasty new school cool at the heart of classics by Bruno Mars, Maxwell and The Isley Brothers.
