ABOUT THE TOUR…
Back by popular demand and fresh off the success of their GRAMMY®-nominated album, Dave Koz and Friends return with the Summer Horns Tour 2014. Koz and Special Guests Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot – four of today’s pre-eminent saxophone players – will deliver an evening of high-octane hits, including songs from their new album, Summer Horns, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and has been in the Top 10 ever since. The GRAMMY-nominated Summer Horns is filled with imaginative takes on horn-era classics by such artists as Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Tower Of Power, Blood, Sweat & Tears, James Brown and Sly & The Family Stone. Koz – hailed by The New York Times as “a musician of unflappable rhythmic aplomb, which he happily squares against the airtight funk of his band” – will be joined by Mindi Abair, featured saxophonist on the 2011 and 2012 seasons of “American Idol” who joined Aerosmith on their 2012 Summer Tour; Gerald Albright, known for his acclaimed solo recordings and performances with Anita Baker, Whitney Houston, and The Temptations; and Richard Elliot, a former member of Tower of Power who has since forged a successful solo career. With support from Dave’s stellar band, they’ll get the groove on, playing songs from Summer Horns and the hottest hits from their individual catalogues, making this a not-to-be-missed night out for music fans.
Recently remodeled with a bold design, the Hornblower Infinity matches the uniqueness of New York — and the Smooth Cruises! The open bow, covered sky deck and over-sized windows provide endless opportunities to enjoy the countless sites in NY Harbor as guests kick back with the best jazz artists in the business. Guests will enjoy the world’s finest contemporary jazz on climate controlled interior decks with multiple dance floors, and can take in the sights outdoors on spacious exterior sundecks. (Note: The yacht is handicapped accessible.)_
