The 2015 Dave Koz compilation, Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection, brings together duets and other collaborative recordings culled from the smooth jazz saxophonist's over-two-decades-long album history. Included are pairings with such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nicks, Rod Stewart, Herb Alpert, and Luther Vandross. Also included are several brand new recordings including a take on the Jackie Wilson soul classic "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher and Higher," featuring vocalist Kenny Lattimore and trumpeter Rick Braun. Also included is Koz's version of the Academy Award-winning song "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen, as well as the song "Good Foot," with longtime associate and keyboardist Jeff Lorber. ~ Matt Collar
