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

Atmospheric, sultry, sexy, melodious... T h i s is arguably the best solo Chris Botti CD of his early career. He has, on this beautifully produced and lyrically named CD, one of the best combination of ballads

One of the few entertainers that sound just as good or better live. Chris played in Turlock,CA., he had a great sound system and enough backup to make it memorable. If you get a chance to see him live, definitely go if you like smooth jazz and a mellow, versatile trumpet player.

Chris Botti Is a fabulous truppe player. I love his usic and io have all his music. But i don't hear as much, lately.

Chris performed in Saginaw MI a couple of days ago, and I was fortunate enough to be in the front row. He is so gracious... a person sneezed right before a song was about to start, and even with the trumpet to his lips--Chris said Bless You to that person. The show was awesome!! Stay blessed Chris--you bring so much happiness to this world through your music!! Your band and other performers were outstanding as well!!
