Dave Koz Chats Up WCLK In Advance of Christmas Tour Dec 2 At Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre

Dave Koz and Jamal Ahmad caught up this week and discussed Koz's upcoming appearance at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre December 2.

Dave Koz and Friends Christmas Tour 2013 is an uplifting, high-energy show the whole family will love. Get into the holiday spirit as some of music's biggest names jam on fresh, lively arrangements of seasonal favorites, led by multi-Grammy nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz.

Joining Dave this year are Japanese born pianist/composer/producer Keiko Matsui, who has shared the stage with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Miles Davis; world-renowned singer Oleta Adams, who first came to prominence when Tears for Fears asked her to appear on their The Seeds of Love album and who has released eight acclaimed CDs of her own, crossing effortlessly between R&B, Jazz, Popular and Gospel music, and Jonathan Butler, who was the first black artist played on white stations in his native South Africa and has since earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields. Together they'll be making spirits bright as this cherished holiday tradition marks its 16th anniversary.
