Dave Koz

Dave Koz (born David Koz, March 27, 1963) is an American jazz saxophonist and radio host.

Koz often draws comparisons to another well-known saxophonist, David Sanborn. Because the two sound almost alike, Koz is sometimes billed as the second coming of Sanborn.

Koz graduated from UCLA with a degree in mass communications in 1986 and started into his musical career almost immediately afterwards playing for crooner Bobby Caldwell. For the rest of the 1980s, Koz served as a session musician in several bands, toured with artists such as Richard Marx, and played in the house band on Arsenio Hall’s late-night talk show.

In 1990, Koz decided to pursue a solo career. The move proved to be successful, and his self-titled album earned high praise from critics and fans alike. His later albums include Lucky Man, The Dance, and Saxophonic. Saxophonic was nominated for both a Grammy and an NAACP Image Award.

In 1994, Koz began hosting a syndicated radio program, “The Dave Koz Radio Show” (formerly “Personal Notes”), featuring the latest music and interviews with who’s who in the genre. He is currently co-host of the morning show on 94.7 The Wave, a smooth jazz station in Los Angeles.

In 2002, Koz started a record label, Rendezvous Entertainment, with Frank Cody and Hyman Katz. One of the first albums from that label was Golden Slumbers: A Father’s Lullaby, which came at the time his brother Jeff became a father for the first time.

Koz also performed “Faces of the Heart”, which served as the theme song on the ABC hit soap General Hospital from 1993 to 2004.

Because they look and sound similar, Koz often draws comparisons to another well-known saxophonist, David Sanborn, and is sometimes billed as "the second coming of Sanborn."He usually plays soprano or alto saxophones, but sometimes plays tenor; he used to occasionally have parts in which a baritone saxophone would have predominance.
