    Hi all - just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for music that sounds like Dave Koz - really liking his stuff - any other recordings that sound similar (and with better basslines)? :help:
  2. Well, I just love "That's the way I feel about you". Some similar songs, which come to mind, could be:

    Brian Bromberg - Through the window (great bass playing)
    Kayah - Twoja Dlon (Polish, I think; tasteful and slow)
    David Benoit - Miles after dark
    Laima - What's forever (great fretless)
    Breaking News - Coffee Cup
    Gato Barbieri - Europa
    Chris Botti - A Thousand Kisses Deep

    They're all quite smooth-jazzy "dinner-ish" songs.. You could also try Mark Turner's Ballad sessions, which feature some great upright playing..
