Dave Koz Christmas Tour 2016 - Chicago Theatre Dec 11th
Nine-time GRAMMY nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz and a trio of special guests – Jonathan Butler, Kenny Lattimore and Ashford & Simpson’s Valerie Simpson – will capture the magic of Christmas in the 19th anniversary edition of Koz’s holiday tour. Koz – who has charted nine No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Album chart, including 2015’s Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection (Concord Records), and has released five holiday albums – has assembled another stellar lineup for 2016. The irrepressible Jonathan Butler, an “alumni” of the tour, has earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields and recently released a new studio album entitled Free. GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Kenny Lattimore – hailed by The New York Times as a “modern soul man” – has released seven solo albums, including his latest, Anatomy of a Love Song. Acclaimed vocalist Valerie Simpson co-wrote such classic hits such as, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “You’re All I Need to Get By,” “Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand” and “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing” as half of the songwriting/performing/producing entity Ashford and Simpson. She recently released a new solo album, Dinosaurs Are Coming Back Again. Together, the four remarkable artists will put fresh spins on holiday classics as well as other selections that beautifully capture the spirit of the season.
