Dave Koz is best known as the smooth jazz saxophonist who recorded hit albums beginning in the 1990s. However, his life in music began as a piano student before playing in the high school jazz band in southern California. After attending UCLA, Dave became a studio session player, which led to meeting producers and fellow musicians who encouraged Dave to branch off into a solo career. His hit records include “You Make Me Smile” from the 1993 album Lucy Man and “Together Again” from The Dance album released in 1999. Dave has enjoyed a long relationship with Yamaha, whose silver alto saxophone he plays along with his Beechler mouthpiece and Rico Reeds.
