The evening, a celebration of the instrument that has fueled some of the world's best-loved songs, promises to be one of the high points of the summer concert season.
Koz – hailed by The New York Times as "a musician of unflappable rhythmic aplomb, which he happily squares against the airtight funk of his band" – will be joined by Mindi Abair, featured saxophonist on the 2011 and 2012 seasons of "American Idol who joined Aerosmith on their 2012 Summer Tour; Gerald Albright, known for his renowned solo recordings and performances with Anita Baker, Whitney Houston, and The Temptations; and Richard Elliot, a former member of Tower of Power who has since forged a successful solo career.
With support from Dave’s stellar band, they'll get the groove on, debuting songs from "Summer Horns" their forthcoming album. “Summer Horns” is a tribute to the great horn section bands in modern music (Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Tower Of Power, Blood, Sweat & Tears, James Brown, Sly & The Family Stone) and is full of imaginative retakes on true horn-era classics. On tour, expect to see the Summer Horns playing gems from the album and the hottest hits from their individual catalogues, making this a not-to-be-missed night out for music fans.
