Sax man Kim Waters dropped by The S.O.U.L. of Jazz with Jamal Ahmad to talk about his music and his current tour, which brings him to Atlanta and the Variety Playhouse Saturday night for the Winds & Strings Show featuring Karen Briggs and Jon Parks.
Veteran saxophonist Kim Waters isn’t known among fans and peers as “the King of Smooth Urban Jazz” for nothing. Over the course of 17 albums, including over a decade’s worth with Shanachie, he’s been consistent and impeccable in delivering an infectious mix of romantic ballads and funky, thumping dance tunes.
Karen Briggs takes the violin to places it’s never been and reaction is ecstatic. Whether she’s electrifying an audience at the world famous Apollo in Harlem or mesmerizing an outdoor throng at the ancient Acropolis in Greece as a featured soloist, touring with Yanni, Karen Briggs is unforgettable. She has appeared in movies and TV, toured the USA, India, China.
