Dave Koz & Friends A Smooth Jazz Christmas Tour and Walk of Fame Induction - A Top Story This Week

09/22/2009
.
Dave Koz & Friends A Smooth Jazz Christmas Tour and Walk of Fame Induction was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (PR) In celebration of the tour's 12th anniversary, this year's Dave Koz & Friends A Smooth Jazz Christmas Tour will feature a reunion of the original cast. Multi-Grammy nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz will be joined by Rick Braun, David Benoit, Peter White and Brenda Russell on the 21-date holiday outing, which launches November 27th in Mobile, AL and concludes on December 22nd in Mesa, AZ. The quintet will perform hits from their respective catalogues and join together on a variety of holiday favorites - including many from their album, A Smooth Jazz Christmas By Dave Koz & Friends, which was hailed upon release as "contemporary music's premier event for Christmas 2001" by allmusic.com. Koz has also released two other holiday collections, December Makes Me Feel This Way (1997) and Memories of a Winter's Night (2007).

Today Koz will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. at 1750 N. Vine Street (in front of Capitol Records). Capitol released Dave Koz - Greatest Hits, his first-ever retrospective album last September. Packed with Koz classics such as "You Make Me Smile," "Faces of the Heart," "Can't Let You Go (The Sha La Song)" featuring the late Luther Vandross and "Honey Dipped" plus four brand news songs, it bowed at No. 1 on both Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and iTunes' Jazz Album chart.

Lead single "Life In The Fast Lane," was No. 1 on the Smooth Jazz chart for seven weeks. It was followed by "Bada Bing," which hit No. 2, and Koz's latest single, "And Then I Knew," which just went to radio. "And Then I Knew" was produced by Rob Cavallo (Dave Matthews Band, Green Day). Although Koz and Cavallo have known each other since second grade, this marks the first time the GRAMMY-winning producer has produced one of Dave's songs - and his first time ever producing an instrumental artist. - more on this story
