Happy Birthday Dave Koz

Mar 27 2013

Birthday wishes to Grammy nominated saxophonist Dave Koz who celebrates today (March 27).  Koz was born in Encino, California and graduated from UCLA before making the decision to become a full-time musician.  He was asked to join Bobby Caldwell for his tour shortly after graduation and then went on to work with Jeff Lorber and Richard Marx. In 1990, he launched his solo career releasing his self-titled debut album.  Koz is the host of his own radio show called the Dave Koz Radio Show airing on the Smooth Jazz Network® every Sunday night and hosts his annual Dave Koz and Friends Cruises each year.  Dave announced he'll be heading out on tour beginning in June for his Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns Tour 2013 featuring fellow saxophonists Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot.  You can check out Dave's full set of tour dates and get ticket information for the Summer Horns Tour here.
