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.
