Kim Waters Paying Tribute To Marvin Gaye

On his last CD, 2006’s You Are My Lady, saxophonist Kim Waters scored a smooth jazz hit with the legendary Marvin Gaye’s most famous songs, “Got to Give It Up.” Now, Kim has finished a new CD, his 16th, titled I Want You: Love in the Spirit of Marvin.   The 11-song CD has two songs composed by Gaye, the title track “I Want You” – which has lead vocals by Vivian Green – and “Distant Lover.”

The remaining nine tunes, as the CD title suggests, are all originals that Waters wrote and hopes listeners will feel have some of that Marvin Gaye magic to them. Among those songs are “Let’s Get On It,” “Groove With Me,” “Some Dreams Come True” and “Smooth Sailing.”

I Want You: Love in the Spirit of Marvin will be available Oct. 28.
