Dave Koz – Greatest Hits, the first-ever retrospective album from the world renowned instrumentalist, composer and Smooth Jazz Network radio personality debuted at No. 1 on both Billboard’s Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and iTunes’ Jazz Album chart.
Meanwhile, the lead single of the album, “Life In The Fast Lane” claims the No. 1 spot on the influential publication Radio & Records Smooth Jazz Indicator chart.
The album, which was completely re-mastered by the legendary Bernie Grundman, contains 11 Koz classics and four brand new tracks.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce recently announced that Koz will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2009, thus making it an even more fitting time for the release of his Greatest Hits collection.
Over the summer, Koz went into the studio with Barry Manilow, who asked him to play sax on three tracks for his upcoming album, and he also taped a performance for the upcoming PBS special “Lights – a Hanukkah Celebration.”
In the past week, Dave appeared on “Entertainment Tonight,” performed at a fundraising concert for Barack Obama, at the ET-People Magazine Emmy party, and picked up the Radio & Records “Personality of the Year” award for his show on Broadcast Architecture’s Smooth Jazz Network.
He’ll wrap up his summer tour this Saturday, September 27th, with an appearance at KTWV Wave Fest at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre. He then travels to Asia for concert dates in Japan, Korea and Thailand, returning home in time to embark on the fourth annual “Dave Koz & Friends At Sea” cruise on November 2nd.
