Chris Botti

Though best known as a contemporary jazz performer, trumpeter Chris Botti made his initial splash on the pop music scene. A native of Oregon, he started playing at the age of ten, and began performing professionally while still in high school. After studying in the prestigious Indiana University music program under noted jazz educator David Baker, Botti relocated to New York, where he served with saxophonist George Coleman and trumpet great Woody Shaw. In 1990, Botti was asked to join Paul Simon's band, where he remained for the next five years. Finally, in 1995, he recorded his solo debut, First Wish, a record combining the sounds of contemporary pop-jazz with the textures of art rock. After scoring the 1996 film Caught, Botti resurfaced in 1997 with his second LP, Midnight Without You, which was followed by Slowing Down the World in 1999.

Two years later, he was a featured soloist on Sting's Brand New Day world tour, and that time allowed Botti to rediscover old musical passions and create new ones. Recorded in Los Angeles, 2001's Night Sessions captured such jazzy pop. That muse was explored further in 2003 with A Thousand Kisses Deep, and to a lesser extent on the more traditional orchestral jazz of 2004's When I Fall in Love. That record was his first Top 40 entry, and it was followed by the number 18 hit To Love Again: The Duets in 2005. Another Top 40 placement, Italia, followed in 2007, with the live album Chris Botti in Boston following in 2009. In 2012, Botti returned with the studio album Impressions. Focusing on his love of melody, Impressions features Botti collaborating with such artists as jazz pianist Herbie Hancock, guitarist Mark Knopfler, country singer Vince Gill, composer/pianist/producer David Foster, and more. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I love Chris Botti!!!!! It was honor to attend his concert at the Riley Center. Hearing on the radio is soothing and he stills your thoughts, but to hear him in person takes you to another level for Jazz itself.

Oh my HEAVENS! Chris Botti is the BEST trumpeter I've ever heard! He came to Meridian Miss, where I live, last night and performed at our historic Riley Center! I got an early birthday present from one of my friends that works there. TICKETS lol!
He was BREATHTAKING ! I have always liked him and been a big fan? But after I actually got to see and hear him??? I am in LOVEEEEEE! He makes that trumpet do everything, but walk itself! ������������

I've seen Chris Botti 4 times, and 2 times I sat in the 3rd row near the center aisle ... right where he would stand during his last song of the evening and play to me and only me. as I told friends. We have tickets to see him Sunday in Galveston at a wonderful old theater and looking forward to it immensely. Great guy after concerts, signing autographs and chatting with people. I have many signed items and a photo of him with my friend's young daughter. He loves kids in the audience.

There is no one that plays like Chris Botti! He can play a song like Sinatra could sing. He brings such an emotion to his music that I have never heard before. Chris is truly gifted and we are all better for having heard him play. Thanks, Chris.

To Sandwish2: When I saw this live with David Foster, Sting, and the Boston Pops behind Chris, the soloist on this was Katherine McPhee. I'm not sure if this is her or not on this version, but I think it is......

Love Chris Botti's trumpet playing!! Trumpeters Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie were all time greats and Chris Botti is in their league of jazz artists. His playing is so crisp and clear. I can always distinguish his sound.
