    I know exactly what you mean! Dave Koz was the one who did it for me too. You seem to be going for a more contemporary jazz style. Some other artists you may like:

    Candy Dulfer (Funked Up! is a great album)
    Brian Culbertson (Live From the Inside)
    Dave Koz (Pretty much every song he’s ever played)
    Eric Darius (Modern pop fusion style)
    The Sax Pack
    David Benoit
    The Rippingtons

    I’ll leave you with that, but I have many more. Just PM me if you want to hear some more suggestions.
