The saxophonist will be aiming at the high-end market.
Saxophonist Michael Lington will become – as far as we know – the first smooth jazz artist to offer a high-end line of cigars. Lington’s cigars, which will be aged four years and called the Michael Lington Classic, will come in three sizes and are being produced in the Dominican Republic. The cigars, featuring the high-end Connecticut Shade wrapper, will have a black label etched with silver-foil writing and be offered in custom cedar boxes.
Lington says he will officially debut his cigars next month during the second annual Dave Koz & Friends At Sea cruise, which departs from San Diego. The cigars will then be available on Lington’s website at michaellington.com and, eventually, through national distribution at tobacco shops and other outlets.
The first single from Michael’s brand-new A Song For You is titled “It’s Too Late” and is on Radio & Records' smooth jazz chart.Posted by Brian Soergel at October 26, 2006 3:31 AM
