Dave Koz & Friends Christmas Tour 2019 with special guests Jonathan Butler, Melissa Manchester and Michael Lington and special guest Chris Walker
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.
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.
Vocalist Melissa Manchester is the first singer to have two movie themes nominated for Academy Awards (Ice Castles and The Promise). She topped the Billboard singles chart placement with the hit “You Should Hear How She Talks About You,” which won a Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance. Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, Manchester alternated occasional recording with script writing and acting, appearing with Bette Midler in For the Boys and on the television series Blossom as the title character’s birth mother.
Contemporary Jazz saxophonist Michael Lington eighth studio album, Pure, features guest appearances by Michael Bolton, Lee Ritenour, Jeff Golub, and others. He nominated for instrumentalist of the year at the 2009 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards for his 2008 release Heat.
Special guest Chris Walker topped the R&B charts with his songs “Giving You All My Love” and “Take Time.” He has currently partnered with Dave Kozfor the upcoming worldwide release of A Tribute to The Man – The Legacy – AL JARREAU.
