Dave Koz & Friends Christmas Tour 2018 • With Mindi Abair, Jonathan Butler and Keiko Matsui
Grammy-nominated saxophonist Dave Koz returns with his annual Christmas tour. Joining him to perform fresh renditions of Christmas classics, and holiday hits from their respective catalogs, are Grammy-nominated jazz saxophonist Mindi Abair, vocalists Jonathan Butler and smooth jazz keyboardist Keiko Matsui.
In a career that spans more than three decades, saxophonist Dave Koz has racked up an astoundingly impressive array of honors and achievements: nine GRAMMY® nominations, nine No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, numerous world tours, playing for multiple presidents, a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and more.
One of the most recognized and sought-after saxophonists, two-time Grammy nominee Mindi Abair has been electrifying audiences with her dynamic live performances and sax prowess since her debut album in 2000. She has garnered ten #1 radio hits, six Top 5 solo records and two #1 spots on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz album chart.
South African expatriate Jonathan Butler isn’t really a jazz artist, but his laid-back, slightly jazz-tinged approach to R&B/pop has earned the singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer a lot of supporters in the urban contemporary, adult contemporary, quiet storm, and smooth jazz/NAC markets. Butler has enjoyed a following since the late ’70s and he continues to tour and record to this today.
Keiko Matsui is a Japanese producer, contemporary jazz pianist and composer who has released more than 20 albums to international acclaim in her three decade career.
