Dave Koz – The Closer We Get

In a recording career that spans nearly three decades, saxophonist Dave Koz has racked up an astoundingly impressive array of honors and achievements.

Nine GRAMMY® nominations, 11 No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, numerous world tours, 13 sold-out Dave Koz & Friends At Sea cruises and performances for multiple U.S. presidents.

A Platinum-selling artist, Koz is also known as a humanitarian, entrepreneur, radio host and instrumental music advocate.


A New Day is his 20th album as an artist and first collection of original material in 10 years. Conceived and recorded completely under the umbrella of Covid, this album’s purpose is to give the listener a ‘musical hug’, hopefully providing a sense of comfort and good feeling amidst the intense backdrop of the pandemic we are all experiencing globally.

The new single “The Closer We Get” is co-written by Darren Rahn and Dave Koz. It’s the follow-up to #1 Billboard hits “Side By Side” and “Dr. Norm”.
