People Magazine Names Dave Koz One of ‘50 Hottest Bachelors’

People magazine calls saxophonist Dave Koz one of the world's hottest bachelors.

It was back in April when Koz announced in Advocate magazine that he was gay. Koz becomes the second high-profile smooth jazz musician to be singled out by the magazine in the last two months: The April 30 edition called trumpeter Chris Botti one of the country’s 50 Most Beautiful People.

Koz joins some pretty select company in Friday's issue, including actors Orlando Bloom and Jake Gyllenhaal, as well as rap star Pharrell Williams of the group N.E.R.D.

Koz, 41, would be a good catch. His second No. 1 song from his album Saxophonic, following “Honey-dipped,” is called “All I See Is You.” It’s been at the top of the smooth jazz charts for three weeks. Koz is currently on the Dave Koz and Friends Smooth Summer Nights Tour.
