Chris Botti has become the largest selling American instrumental artist since the 2004 release of his critically acclaimed #1 Top Jazz Album When I Fall In Love. On an unrelated note, that was also the year he was named one of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People.
Chris Botti is a trumpeter who has established himself firmly in the realm of contemporary jazz and pop music. Chris has discovered mainstream success and sold over three million albums worldwide. He has given stand-out performances alongside an impressive roster of musicians over the past three decades.
Chris has recorded and performed with the musical world’s best – including Frank Sinatra, Sting, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, John Mayer, Andrea Bocelli, Yo-Yo Ma, Joshua Bell and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.
When I Fall In Love was only the first of the #1 Top Jazz albums, it was followed by To Love Again: The Duets (2005, #1 Top Jazz Album), and Chris Botti Live with Orchestra & Special Guests (2006, #2 Top Jazz Album).
Chris Botti is a mellow jazz styling with soulful brass that finds its way to your core. His music has crossed the divide to find popularity with audiences usually reserved for pop music.
It was 1999 when Chris Botti came to the attention of Sting as a charismatic performer and gifted instrumentalist, and he was asked to join his band as a featured soloist on the Brand New Day Tour. This is what the legendary Sting said about Chris:
“What is unique about him is that he has jazz chops and he comes from the world of jazz. He also has a very refined pop sensibility. He looks great and he presents himself well. He works hard, and you know, you see a star a mile off.”
This album would be perfect to chill to and worth a listen for jazz fans.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write!
