Florida bassist and emerging contemporary jazz artist, Walter Kittle follows up his acclaimed debut album Full Circle with Jazz by the Sea – a soulful and eclectic five track EP that celebrates the joys of romance and the natural beauty of life in his new home in west central Florida. Kittle offers a range of sounds unique to the urban jazz genre via a variety of instruments, including piccolo bass, five string bass, MIDI synthesizer bass, fretless bass and his custom 8-string bass – an axe he calls “an extended range bass,” which allows him to modulate to sound like a jazz guitar. Kittle wrote the opening track “She Fire,” featuring the funky sax of Nick Stone, when he was dating his now wife Robin, as an ode to her red hair and vibrant personality. The tracks on Kittle’s upcoming EP, Jazz by the Sea are produced by renowned multi-instrumentalist and producer Nate Harasim. The contagious collection offers an eclectic mix of songs full of cool mood swings, dreamy atmospheres, funky hooks and vibes and exciting jazzy solos.
