Dave Koz And Friends: Summer Horns II From A To Z

Jul 4, 2018

Dave Koz recently brought his Summer Horns Tour through Atlanta for a well-attended live appearance at Wolf Creek Ampitheater. Concord Records has now released the album featuring the same performers, including Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Richard Elliot and Aubrey Logan. Dave Koz and Friends: Summer Horns II from A-Z features contemporary takes on classic songs from everyone from Duke Ellington to Paul Simon. You can hear cuts from 'Summer Horns II' on WCLK at various times, particularly their cover of the Crusaders classic Keep That Same Old Feeling.

The presence of your gift was felt, on June 28 as over 200 volunteers gathered at the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB). We filled bags for ACFB and The Soulful Project, which provides nutritious food for families and children in transition.  We worked haaarrrrrd! We were also tasked to fill over 1,000 back packs for delivery serving some of the  600+ Food Bank partner agencies in 29 counties throughout Greater Atlanta and North Georgia.  It is a really warm feeling to be able to help make someone else feel better.

Join me on Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Sunday, June 24 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. when my guest will be Cheryl Bentyne of the Manhattan Transfer.  Their new studio release is The Junction(BMG), and they will be appearing at Atlanta Symphony Hall on Friday, June 22 at 8:00pm. The Manhattan Transfer has been performing and making music for over forty years. The late Tim Hauser formed the group in 1969, and they explore a capella, vocalese, swing, Jazz and other forms of music.

Michael Franks has been a leading contemporary Jazz vocalist since the days of his 1975 collaboration with the Crusaders, The Art of Tea.  He's released his first record in eight years, The Music In My Head(Shanachie).  The record features 10 original songs produced by Gil Goldstein, who has produced recent records for Jill Scott, Esperanza Spalding and Chris Botti.
