Lovers of jazz music will soon be traveling to Columbia’s Koger Center to hear the smooth saxophone sounds of Dave Koz, along with other featured performers. The Summer Horns show will be held Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Koz has been a musician for more than three decades, with an 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 other honors.

Recently, Koz has released one of the most exciting recordings of his career. Five years after recording their initial tribute to the great horn sections of soul, jazz and pop, Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns II From A To Z reprises the all-star, crowd-pleasing format of the hit album.
