Dave Koz – Hello Tomorrow

Dave Koz is the charming prince of smooth jazz. After his self-titled solo debut in 1990 he dominated the charts with Lucky Man (1993), Off the Beaten Path (1996) and three holiday albums – December Makes Me Feel This Way (1997), Dave Koz & Friends: A Smooth Jazz Christmas (2001) and Memories of a Winter’s Night (2007), furthermore The Dance (1999), Saxophonic (2003), At the Movies (2007), followed by Dave Koz at the Movies Double Feature CD + DVD, and Dave Koz: Greatest Hits (2008).

Since 2005 he is the front man of Dave Koz & Friends Jazz Cruises and since 2006 he is also host of a syndicated afternoon show for Broadcast Architecture’s new Smooth Jazz Network. This 4 times Grammy nominated musical artist is in addition host of a weekly half-hour television series named Frequency put on by Fast Focus. His career was crowned in 2009 with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Looks like all is running well for this lucky man, who is an in demand musician on many concerts and festivals. But then he comments thoughtfully: “In many ways, I feel like this is the beginning of my career. That may sound strange, because I’ve enjoyed a wonderful and blessed career up until now, but I feel like my best days are still ahead of me. I’ve made a Dave Koz record that fans of my earlier work will be able to connect to. It’s still me. It’s not too foreign, but it’s me in 2010, coming from a different perspective that’s reflective of the times we’re living in and the changes that continue to define this new era.”

Dave Koz is a perfectionist. When he records a new album, you can await finest quality in music and to assure it, Dave assembled the who-is-who of music business like Lee Ritenour, Brian Culbertson, Marcus Miller, Sheila E., Jonathan Butler, Boney James, Paul Jackson Jr., Lenny Castro, Omar Hakim, Herb Alpert, Keb’ Mo’ and many more. “Make the most out of your life”, is Dave’s motto.
