MORRISTOWN — Enjoy a breezy evening of smooth summer jazz when saxophonist Dave Koz and bassist Larry Graham come to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, July 25, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $49-$89.

In the 25+ years since the release of his self-titled solo debut album, saxophonist Dave Koz has received nine Grammy nominations, had nine No. 1 albums on Billboard's Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, toured the world and been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Dave is constantly touring, with annual summer and holiday tours, and the highly successful Dave Koz & Friends At Sea.

Dave also continues to flex his mass communications muscles as a radio personality. As host of his syndicated "Dave Koz Radio Show," he has been broadcasting coast-to-coast for more than 21 years.

In the spring of 2014, he launched "The Dave Koz Lounge," which airs Sundays on SiriusXM (Satellite radio), and "Dave Koz & Friends Radio," a 24-hour-a day radio channel personally curated by Dave on JAZZRADIO.com, a multichannel internet radio service. As a philanthropist, Koz has served as global ambassador for the Starlight Children's Foundation for over 20 years.

With KOZ Wines, founded in 2009, he found another way to help Starlight continue its vital mission. Dave is donating all his proceeds from KOZ Wines to Starlight.

He is credited with the invention of the slapping technique, which radically expanded the tonal palette of the bass, although he himself refers to the technique as "Thumpin' and Pluckin'." As a solo performer he scored a top 10 hit with "One in a Million You."
