Jazz Man Dave Koz is Gay

Out, six-time Grammy nominee Dave Koz has without question earned the right to be known as the pied piper of smooth jazz. Not only has he recorded a string of chart-topping collections, played alongside the likes of Celine Dion, U2, Natalie Cole and Rod Stewart, and toured the globe non-stop for the last two decades, Koz also hosts a nationally distributed afternoon radio show as well as the syndicated Dave Koz Radio Show, which is heard on the weekends in nearly 120 markets around the country.

Add to his hit-making magic, the fact that he has also carved out time to launch his own Koz Cabernet Sauvignon, host a Dave Koz and Friends Smooth Jazz cruise and serve as Global Ambassador for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, and it’s not hard to see why at the top of my interview with this favorite son of jazz, I teasingly proclaimed him to be the ‘Oprah of smooth jazz.’

Dave Koz recently checked in with GayWired from a stop on his Dave Koz and Friends Smooth Jazz Christmas Tour and talked about everything from his thoughts about Proposition 8 and how he’ll be spending the holidays (and with whom) to the very sentimental origins of his annual holiday music juggernaut and what this self-proclaimed ‘nice Jewish boy,’ who became a Christmas favorite, wants most this holiday season.
