Dave Koz will return to Rod Stewart’s American Songbook album series.
Smooth jazz saxophonist Dave Koz will make a return appearance with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Rod Stewart as the vocalist comes out with the third volume of his interpretations of the Great American Songbook.
You may recall that Koz performed on Stewart’s It Had to Be You...The Great American Songbook, the first in the series released in October of 2002. Koz also made an appearance with Stewart onstage on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Koz didn’t perform on Stewart’s second in the series from 2003, As Time Goes By, but will definitely be featured on the upcoming Stardust ... The Great American Songbook: Volume III, to be released by J Records.
The first two albums, debuting at No. 4 and No. 2, respectively, on the Billboard charts, have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. Also dueting with Stewart will be Stevie Wonder, Dave Grusin, Eric Clapton, Arturo Sandoval, Bette Midler and Dolly Parton.
Songs include "What A Wonderful World," "For Sentimental Reasons," "Embraceable You," "S'Wonderful," "But Not For Me," "Stardust," "I Can't Get Started," "Isn't It Romantic," "Night And Day," "Baby, It's Cold Outside," "Manhattan," and "Blue Moon."
Stardust ... The Great American Songbook: Volume II will be released on Oct. 19.Posted by Brian Soergel at September 22, 2004 4:51 AM
