Early Show : 7:00 PM
Late Show : 9:30 PM
In a career that spans more than three decades, saxophonist Dave Koz has racked up an astoundingly impressive array of honors and achievements: nine GRAMMY nominations, nine number one albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, numerous world tours, playing for multiple presidents, a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and more. A platinum selling artist, Koz is also known as a humanitarian, entrepreneur, radio host and instrumental music advocate. Now, he has released one of the most exciting recordings of his long career. Five years after recording their initial tribute to the great horn sections of soul, jazz and pop, Dave Koz and Friends’ Summer Horns II From A To Z reprises the all-star, crowd-pleasing format of that smash hit outing. The album features Koz, Gerald Albright, Richard Elliot, Rick Braun and Aubrey Logan, plus guest vocalists Jonathan Butler, Kenny Lattimore and more. Since the beginning of his career, Koz has been all about shaking things up, dodging expectations and traditions. Summer Horns II From A To Z follows another milestone anniversary recording, 2017’s Dave Koz and Friends 20th Anniversary Christmas, which celebrated the saxophonist’s annual holiday tours and reunited him with David Benoit, Braun and Peter White. The lineup on Summer Horns II From A To Z and the 2017 Christmas project marked just the latest in a long list of artists with whom Koz has collaborated over the years, including Burt Bacharach, Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan, Luther Vandross, Shelby Lynne, Kenny Loggins, U2, Michael McDonald, Rod Stewart and The Foo Fighters.
