Dave Koz reunites with the original cast of the longest-running jazz-based Christmas Tour on this album, marking the 25th Anniversary milestone of the tour in 2022. Produced by the legendary Philippe Saisse, the album features all newly recorded Christmas favorites and one original song from Koz, who has previously released 7 holiday-themed albums, and heartfelt performances by contemporary jazz icons, trumpeter Rick Braun, guitarist Peter White, and the original co-creator of the tour, pianist David Benoit.
The album will be a companion piece to the live shows, with much of the new music being performed live for the very first time on the 23-city tour, kicking off Thanksgiving weekend, 2022.
