The ever-busy saxophonist also announces release date for latest CD: Jan. 30.
Saxophonist Dave Koz, who already hosts two radio shows and a smooth jazz cruise, will soon be able to add that of television host. Koz has been selected as the host of an upcoming series devoted to music called Frequency that will be aired on PBS stations nationwide.
The show will give viewers a backstage look into the lives of a variety of music artists from all musical genres, from emerging artists to more established acts. Each episode will blend performances and interviews by Koz. The 30-minute show, scheduled to debut early next year, will air weekly. The initial, hour-long episode will include an interview with saxophonist Michael Lington, who will also perform. Lington is signed to Kozís Rendezvous Entertainment record label, and his latest CD, A Song For You, was released recently.
Among the other artists on the hour-long series premiere will be Corrine Bailey Rae, Ben Harper, Steve Miller, Nelly Furtado and KT Tunstall.
"This will be a nationwide program, a music magazine," says Koz. "The thing I love about it is that it is cross-genre, so the first show could have a story about Michael Lington, which it did. It could have Ben Harper, whoís a fantastic singer-songwriter. And it could have everything in between, too. It's kind of a cross between interview and music footage, live music footage as well. Iís recorded out of Capitol Records studios in Hollywood. So itís emanating from a place where a lot of incredible music has been made."
Koz's upcoming CD called At the Movies will be released by Capitol Records on Jan. 30. The first single, "It Must Be You" featuring guitarist Peter White, is now available on iTunes.Posted by Brian Soergel at October 3, 2006 1:47 AM
