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).
