Saxophonist-band leader-composer-arranger-producer Kim Waters was instantly established among the premier Urban Jazz hit makers. Now, after over two decades as a music superstar with 16 Top Ten and 14 #1 singles, 4 #1 CDs and sales in excess of two million album units, Kim again elevates his already luminous career profile to an even higher pinnacle with MY LOVES, his 19th solo album and major label debut.

Celebrated keyboardist, composer and studio musician, Brian Simpson has been the ‘go-to’ man for everyone from Janet Jackson and Teena Marie to George Duke, Stanley Clarke and Dave Koz, for whom he has had the distinction of being musical director for the past 15 years. The chart-topping musical chameleon who wrote the #1 R&B hit “The First Time” for Surface in the 1990s confesses, “Ultimately, my listeners inspire me to make my music.”

Two great jazz performers come together for this concert that highlight a variety of musical influences that promise to stir up and maintain a great sense of joy and musical passion!

Jessy J and her band headline this year’s show as she demonstrates her Latin heritage with powerhouse rhythms as a soul-inspiring performer. Her shows are seasoned with authentic Latin zing and packed with real jazz flavor! She is a wonderful singer, songwriter and saxophonist and is currently being hailed as “Sexy, irresistible, sensible, the upcoming sax star, soulful, delightful, top notch, fresh, and terrific!” (

Jessy’s special musical guest will be the very warm and sensual Kim Waters, often referred to as the Romantic Pied Piper of Urban Jazz. He is one of the top five best-selling instrumentalists in jazz. His winning combination of sensitivity and brawn, intellect and emotion, coupled with his technique and soulfulness have helped him to score over thirteen #1 hits and over 20 Top 10 hits.

This will be a show where nothing will be held back – Absolutely nothing! (
