Saxophonist Dave Koz is again laying plans for his annual Dave Koz & Friends Smooth Jazz Christmas tour.
So far, Koz has nailed down a handful of late-November and early December stops. More shows are expected; last year's tour ended just before Christmas.
In addition to the holiday run, Koz's plans also include a smattering of August, September and October performances.
Joining Koz on stage are trumpet player Rick Braun, bassist Wayman Tisdale--who took up his professional music career after his stint as an NBA player--and South African guitarist/vocalist Jonathan Butler.
Koz continues to support last October's "Saxophonic." The set features the cut "Honey-Dipped," for which Koz garnered a Grammy nomination in the Best Pop Instrumental Performance category.
On top of his touring and recording endeavors, Koz hosts a morning radio show in Los Angeles and a weekly, syndicated, smooth-jazz show. He is also the co-founder of the record label Rendezvous Entertainment.
