Decided to feature a bit of contemporary jazz tonight. For fans of contemporary/smooth, this is a strong track and should be an automatic download. For jazz fans looking to dip their toe into this jazz sub-genre, this ain't a bad place to start.
Radio edit of the debut single from This Heart of Mine, the new album from this Urban/Smooth Jazz saxophone superstar. Personnel: Kim Waters (all instruments, saxophones and background vocals), Dana Pope (all female lead and background vocals), Allen Hinds (guitars).

I love jazz because it's sophisticated, international, atmospheric yet free, cool and warm.
I was first exposed to jazz through the sultry voice and flawless swing of my mother.
I met Mark Murphy, David Linx, Kurt Elling, and Youn Sun Nah.
The best show I ever attended was Youn Sun Nah in Paris.
The first jazz record I bought was Native Dancer by Wayne Shorter and Milton Nascimento
My advice to new listeners: open your mind and your ears, forget about structure, feel the textures.
Go see live music and keep buying CDs!
