The Blue Note welcomes back Chris Botti for his 9th holiday residency. Since the 2004 release of his critically acclaimed album When I Fall in Love, Botti has become America’s largest-selling jazz instrumental artist. His success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music, achieving multiple gold and platinum certifications, four No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Jazz Albums listings, and this year, his first GRAMMY as a leader. Over the past three decades, Botti has recorded and performed with the best in music. Hitting the road for as many as 300 days per year, the trumpeter and his incredible band have also performed with many of the finest symphonies and at some of the world’s most prestigious venues. Playing with his uniquely expressive sound and soaring musical imagination, Botti is joined on his new GRAMMY-winning Impressions by featured artists Andrea Bocelli, Vince Gill, Herbie Hancock, Mark Knopfler, David Foster, and Caroline Campbell.
Botti seemed destined to become a musician with international appeal almost from the beginning. His mother was a concert pianist and his Italian father took the family to live in Italy for several years. An early connection with the music of Miles Davis solidified his affection for the trumpet, melody, space and balance. After attending Indiana University he moved to New York in the mid-‘80s and worked with the Buddy Rich Big Band, Frank Sinatra, Natalie Cole, Joni Mitchell and more. Throughout the ‘90s and into the new century, Botti played extensively with Paul Simon, and had an especially creative association with Sting. Now a major artist in his own right, performing worldwide, selling more than three million albums, he has found a form of creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre.
