music business is fast paced. For years, Kim Waters was a fixture on
the label Shanachie Entertainment. His 19th solo album My Loves
was however released on Red River Entertainment in 2013. Now he
returns on the same label with Silver Soul, scheduled for
release on September 2, 2014.
25 years since his first release Sweet &
Saxy Kim Waters celebrates his silver anniversary. He has
remained faithful to his music style. No reason to change the horse,
when you are successful. As usual Waters performs on the new album
all instruments, saxophone and background vocals. Allen Hinds
supports him with guitars. There are also some guest musicians such
as his daughter Kayla Waters on piano and additional lead and
background singers Dana Pope, Zendaya and Eric Roberson.
“Silver Soul is really a thank you to
my audience that has been with me thus far throughout my 25-year
musical journey as a recording artist. I took my time writing the
material because I wanted it to be an album of hits with every song
sounding like a single,” comments Waters.
In terms of harmony nobody can compete Waters.
You can hear it on the starter Dreaming Of You. He even
skillfully integrates improvisations. Perfect is also his way of
overdubbing, which he often love to use in the field of bridges.
On A Mission is a good example.
Inimitable are his ballads like Stay
Together, on which his silky voice starts sounding in addition
to the saxophone. Slack and easy it goes on Go-Go Smooth.
This character is supported by the shuffle beat. Anything You
Need features Kim Water's wife Dana Pope, who has already been
involved in several of his projects. A true vocal enrichment.
If everything is in the right place as on Cruising Round Rock,
you should just sit back and enjoy it. John Legend's tender ballad
All Of Me is implemented in all excellence by Waters. A
good reminder to buy Legend's wonderful album. The highly talented
and gorgeous vocalist Zendaya shines on Fireflies
spellbinding the audience with her outstanding voice. With Let's
Make Love Waters endows the lovers with a dreamy affectionate
High stride consist of an encouraging and a contemplative
part, hooking on both sides. A Song For Dana is dedicated
to Waters' wife Dana. Interpreted by soprano saxophone the
melody exudes warmth and tenderness. Laying Beside Me
features soulful singer Eric Roberson, who is the best cast for this
With Silver Soul Kim Waters meets all the expectations of his
fans. In any case, enthralling and full of groove, he showcases
a perfection that is based on many years of experience and skill.
