In a career that spans more than a quarter century, nine GRAMMY® nominations, nine No. 1
albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, numerous world tours, playing for
multiple presidents and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, saxophonist Dave Koz has
maintained a commitment to his music like few other artists of his genre or generation.
In 2013, Koz assembled three of his most talented and trusted colleagues Gerald
Albright, Richard Elliot and Mindi Abair to revisit this golden age with new arrangements of classic
songs from this period in the history of popular music. It resulted in a successful album, and an even
more successful tour. Summer Horns II From A To Z, the 2018 edition, features horn stalwarts
Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Richard Elliot and Aubrey Logan (Post Modern Jukebox), with guest
vocalists Jonathan Butler, Kenny Lattimore and Sheléa, covering classics by Earth Wind & Fire,
The Crusaders, Chicago, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Duke Ellington, Jay-Z & more.
