Santa Koz returns to Mesa. Nine-time Grammy® nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz and Jonathan Butler, Kenny Lattimore and Ashford & Simpson’s Valerie Simpson –will capture the magic of Christmas in the 19th anniversary edition of Koz’s holiday tour.
The irrepressible Jonathan Butler, an “alumnus” of the tour, has earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields and recently released a new studio album entitled Free. Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Kenny Lattimore has been hailed by The New York Times as a “modern soul man.” Acclaimed vocalist Valerie Simpson co-wrote such classic hits such as, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “You’re All I Need to Get By,” and “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing” as half of the songwriting/performing/producing entity Ashford and Simpson.
Together, these four remarkable artists will put fresh spins on holiday classics, as well as other selections that beautifully capture the spirit of the season.
