Chris Botti returns to the Blue Note for his highly-anticipated annual three week run through Christmas and New Year's Eve.
Since the 2004 release of his critically acclaimed CD When I Fall In Love, Chris Botti (pronounced boat-tee) has become the largest-selling American jazz instrumental artist. His success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music, and his ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 jazz albums, as well as multiple Gold, Platinum, and Grammy Awards.
Over the past three decades, Botti has recorded and performed with the best in music, including Frank Sinatra, Sting, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, John Mayer, Andrea Bocelli, Joshua Bell, and Aerosmith's own Steven Tyler.
Hitting the road for 250 days or more per year, Botti and his incredible band have performed with many of the finest symphonies and at some of the world's most prestigious venues, including performances at the World Series and the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony.
A master artist and performer, Botti, who’s sold nearly three million albums worldwide, worked closely with an unparalleled roster of the world’s greatest musicians, drawing from a wide-ranging repertoire of pop, jazz, and classical music to create a series of aesthetically rewarding performances and two night’s worth of unforgettable concert experiences. Chris Botti In Boston, an extraordinarily luxurious film of the two-night event, captures and accentuates the warmth, excitement, chemistry and spontaneity of the shows.
