Format: Audio CD
Musically, Koz seems to fit about halfway between Kenny G. and David Sanborn on this CD. He lacks the hard jazz edge of Sanborn, but avoids the lightweight fluff of Kenny. The result is a pleasing, if variable mix, of that "soft jazz sound".
The interesting part, though, is that Koz himself seems to realize he's not a strong enough player to carry a whole instrumental album. The result is tunes like "Yesterday's Rain" and "Nothing But the Radio On", which features vocals and has Koz's excellent playing merely as background fodder -- very good background fodder, but fodder all the same.
Still, this CD is a great one to relax to, especially in front of a nice fire with someone you would like to make your significant other. Then maybe you too can have "Nothing But The Radio On"...

Before recording this debut album, Dave played on albums by acts as disparate as Joan Armatrading, U2, Ray Charles, Donny Osmond, Richard Marx and Gladys Knight & The Pips. On this album he is supported by experts Jeff Lorber (keyboards), Buzz Feiten (guitar), Randy Jackson (bass) and Tom Scott (sax) plus vocal contributions from Cole Basque and Joey Diggs. Koz plays the sax with gusto and his scope includes the full spectrum of pop, jazz and R&B. There's no doubt he enjoys what he's doing - on the track Love Of My Life, for instance, the mix of funky beat and Ms Basque's piercing vocal creates an effect not unlike that of Prince or Michael Jackson. Very exuberant.

Usually, musicians' debut CD's are not the greatest. Dave Koz is the exception. Two of my all-time favorite songs, Perfect Stranger and Give it Up are on this CD. Also good are Emily, Endless Summer Nights and Love of My Life. Dave brings a funky, pop feel to these songs that Kenny G could never do. If you buy one smooth jazz CD, get this one.

I was just introduced to Dave's music by a friend and have enjoyed it so much I went out and bought two other of his CD's. I can listen to his music at work, home or in the car. Thank you, Dave, for your gift of music.

Format: Audio CD
During Jeff Lorber's late 80's concert dates following his Private Passion album,he debuted a new saxophone player in his band named David Koz. All one has to do is do a Youtube search for any Jeff Lorber concert footage from that period and see that Koz was a colorful and sometimes unintentionally scene stealing presence in the Lorber band. With a style of playing that weighed right in the middle between the more greasily melodic sax playing of soul-jazz and the sweeter melodic sax playing of smooth jazz,David Koz was just what the doctor ordered in terms of presenting a sound that was both palatable to pop audiences and challenging enough to at least more open minded jazz lovers. All the same,his personality was even more destined for a solo career than Kenny G's,another Lorber alumni,had been. Debuting during Lorber's recording hiatus but at the very beginning of the 90's decade David Koz did make some impact here.

The first two songs on this album "So Far From Home" and "Emily" are by no means terrible. But they are not particularly exciting album openers and don't say much about Koz as a musical individual. Same goes basically for "Castle Of Dreams". Some of the most compelling music here comes when Koz presents an uptempo sound that blends then contemporary house/dance beats and rhythms with his own sax playing on the instrumental "Give It Up",co-written by Lorber along with the excellent "Love Of My Life" featuring singer Cole Basque' (who also appears are on the less stimulating "If Love Is All We Have" and another instrumental called "Perfect Stranger". These best demonstrate Koz's bubbly and vibrant musical personality probably the best of anything on this album.

This saxman is maybe a follower of DAVID SANBORN.I suppose that he respects him in many ways. The arranger of this CD is JEFF LORBER.That's why the contents of these music is electronically funky and vocal oriented.But the problem is DAVE KOZ doesn't have his sinature sound approach here.His too powerful and monotonous blow makes me a little bit sloopy.So overall JEFF LORBER'S arrangement helps the weak point of this CD.
Not an excellent album, but a kitchin BGM. I recommend this CD to all the people who want to have fun in the kitchen.

Dave is a great smooth jazz saxophone player, unlike Kenny G you know the legatoman(the songs is so melankolist). Dave's mix anykind of music to his songs..that's makes him soo good about it and recently he came to my country, Indonesia, i met him and talk to him, he's a nice character and a great man..

Dave Koz is the coolest jazz artist of the 1990s. Unlike that marshmallow Kenny G, Koz can make any song exciting. I love his work with the alto saxophone. Anytime he picks it up, he adds vivid color to the song. I love "Give It Up," "Nothing But the Radio On," "Castle of Dreams," and "Perfect Stranger." I hope Dave Koz makes albums as good as this. And I definitely hate Kenny G, because he's just a boring pile of trash!
