Saxophonist Dave Koz will reprise his annual Smooth Jazz Christmas tour for the eighth consecutive year, beginning Nov. 26 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Guitarist Norman Brown, keyboardist Brian Culbertson and vocalist Brenda Russell will
be joining Koz on the road this holiday season. The 21-city tour concludes Dec. 22 in Long Beach, Calif., at the Terrace Theatre.

Koz, who hosts a morning radio show on "the Wave" in Los Angeles and a nationally syndicated weekly smooth-jazz radio show, is currently working on "Golden Slumbers II: A Father's Love." The album is the follow-up to 2002's Grammy-nominated "Golden Slumbers," which was the first release from Rendezvous Entertainment, an independent label Dave co-founded.

Koz recently joined a host of smooth-jazz stars paying tribute to R&B vocalist Luther Vandross on "Forever, For Always, For Luther." The album, released last month, will raise funds for diabetes care and research. Koz is booked by Jim Gosnell at Agency for the Performing Arts.
