Dave Koz – Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection

Collaborations9x GRAMMY® nominee Dave Koz has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and established himself as a platinum-selling artist, humanitarian, entrepreneur, radio host and instrumental music advocate. He is marking the 25th Anniversary of his recording career with this collection of musical collaborations throughout his career (Concord and Capitol), along with three new songs: “Good Foot” featuring Jeff Lorber; “Game of Thrones Theme” (Scott Bradlee) and the hit theme song from Disney’s movie: Frozen, “Let It Go.”

In the 25 years since the release of his self-titled solo debut album, the acclaimed saxophonist has received nine GRAMMY® nominations, had seven albums top Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Along the way, he’s established an impressive body of work and built a fan base that stretches around the globe. But Koz would be the first to tell you that he hasn’t done it all by himself.

I’m so proud of that, and so blown away by it. In this milestone year, I want to say thank you to all of them for helping me along this road. And I especially want to thank the fans who’ve been with me since day one. Every single one has been a collaborator with me.” Continue reading
