Music is everywhere and is everything. It is also alive! Music has been the one constant social and emotional thing that drops us to our knees, put us on our feet, have us cry out in pain and even shout to the top of our lungs with joy. It has brought us together in victories and defeats, consoled us in dying times and joined us together in holy matrimonies. ”Remember a song and you will remember a place and time in your life”. That is a quote from music’s soul stirrer, R&B singer/songwriter K’Jon. He will forever be linked to many people for his hit song, “On The Ocean”, which gave him a #1 song on the radio for six weeks straight. Amazingly, his last album ”I Get Around” also debuted at #1 on the Hip Hop/R&B album charts and later made Billboards Top 50 R&B/Hip Hop Album of 2009! The album was so well received by audiences nationwide that K’Jon was nominated for the Best New Artist category at the 2010 NAACP Image Awards. Bio from K' Jon Official website.

KENNY GARRETT DEBUTS HIS NEW CD
PUSHING THE WORLD AWAY
For his third Mack Avenue Records release, Pushing the World Away, alto/soprano saxophonist,
composer/bandleader Kenny Garrett literally had to “push away” a steady flow of distractions to get to the
inner core of the album, shifting priorities in his schedule and diving deep into the essence of the music.
“I’m always writing, so coming up with the music wasn’t a problem,” says Garrett, who is arguably the most
imitated alto saxophone player in jazz. “But I had been traveling a lot with my band, and I don’t rehearse new
material on tour. Yet to record an album requires a lot of preparation and to conceptualize the music I had to
push away to receive the blessings and gifts from these songs.”
On Pushing the World Away, Garrett continues to mature as a composer. As the late Mulgrew Miller, his
close friend for many years, noted in a DownBeat feature on the saxophonist last year: “Kenny has always
had a great sound from the beginning. He had his own unique sound, but [thanks to his compositions] that
sound has transformed into a more captivating and lyrical voice.”
Garrett, in turn, nods to the pianist who he had known for more than 30 years on the jaunty, upbeat and at
times explosive opening track of the album, “A Side Order of Hijiki,” which is decidedly not about the hijiki
culinary seaweed. “No seaweed,” says Garrett who takes an expansive alto flight on this track. “It’s actually
the word that Mulgrew used to describe my playing style. He would say, ‘I hear you playing that hijiki’.”
The romance continues: urban-jazz saxophonist Kim Waters will mark his 25th year with the release of “Silver Soul” on September 2.
New York City (10 July 2014): With persistence, patience and passion, romance grows stronger, richer and sweeter each year and for 25 years, urban-jazz saxophonist Kim Waters has written, produced and performed chart-topping candlelight compositions that explore the excitement, exoticism and mystique of love. He will clank glasses on September 2 to celebrate the silver anniversary with the release of his aptly titled 20th solo album, “Silver Soul,” to be issued by Red River Entertainment.
“Silver Soul” is most definitely an urban adult contemporary album with a wealth of R&B vocals and sultry grooves although almost half of the dozen cuts produced by Waters are instrumental numbers certain to woo his contemporary jazz fan base like the highly rhythmic first single with the grandiose hook, “Dreaming Of You,” is already doing. The tune showcasing his daughter Kayla Waters on piano was the second most added track on playlists this week according to BDS Radio. Press from Official Kim Waters websit
