All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
The title of Kim Waters' 1998 Shanachie debut, Love's Melody, is a perfect reflection of the saxman's very simple and direct philosophy about composing and playing: "There's got to be a perfect mixture of romance, groove, and a strong melody that you can hum along to after the first listen." A longtime staple on R&B/quiet storm stations over the course of eight recordings beginning with his 1988 Warlock Records debut, Sweet and Saxy, Waters -- working with labelmate/guitarist Chuck Loeb and composer/producer David Mann -- shifted gears on Love's Melody toward a picture-perfect smooth jazz sound that built on his roots.

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
The title of Kim Waters' 1998 Shanachie debut, Love's Melody, is a perfect reflection of the saxman's very simple and direct philosophy about composing and playing: "There's got to be a perfect mixture of romance, groove, and a strong melody that you can hum along to after the first listen." A longtime staple on R&B/quiet storm stations over the course of eight recordings beginning with his 1988 Warlock Records debut, Sweet and Saxy, Waters -- working with labelmate/guitarist Chuck Loeb and composer/producer David Mann -- shifted gears on Love's Melody toward a picture-perfect smooth jazz sound that built on his roots. The similarly spirited and passionate One Special Moment builds on that success with numerous picture-perfect tunes primed to inherit that throne. While Loeb only appears on the two songs he co-wrote with Waters and produced -- the lilting and seductive "Secrets Told" and the funk-drenched retro-soul-blues gem "Up All Night" -- the guitarist's influence is felt throughout the disc. Waters worked with Mann on the cool shuffling hip-hop-influenced opening track, "Hudson River Nights" which features Waters beautifully modulating his soprano verse by verse, as well as a cool flügelhorn harmony line by Jim Hynes, as well as the irresistibly melodic and dreamy title track. Brian Bromberg, a virtuoso bassist who is also one of the genre's great veteran artists, wrote and produced "Come to Me," highlighted by the unique blend of a throbbing bass and sax-driven melody swirled with Gregg Karukas' synthesized orchestra grandeur.

    The Flow of Kim Waters

    Kim Waters defintely has a wrapt audience out there. He blends funk and R&B into that smooth saxophone, to create a fun but serious style. This is definitely a jazz-collector's item!

    CATWALK MUSIC FOR EVERYONE !!! (SMILE)

    I got this CD as I fell in love with Track 2...'Secrets Told'....after hearing it over and over again on the jazz station in my local area. Then I heard the entire CD and WOW!!!, I 'catwalked' all day. Lovely grooves and such fresh, clear sounds. This artist surely knows what he's about and executes in fine, elegant style. You go Kim !!! Encore please???? God Bless. Suzy R (Mimai, Florida )
