An Evening with

Chris Botti

Friday, April 26 at 8pm, Tickets: $59/49

Playing with his uniquely expressive sound and soaring musical imagination, Chris Botti’s performance is a warm, intimate celebration of melodic balladry. Trumpeter Chris Botti’s new Sony CD, Impressions, is the latest in a stellar parade of albums – starting with 2004’s When I Fall In Love and continuing with To Love Again, Italia and the CD/DVD Chris Botti In Boston – that have firmly established him as the world’s largest selling jazz instrumentalist. Add to that a cluster of Grammy® nominations and three #1 albums on Billboard’s Jazz Albums listings.

A major artist in his own right, performing worldwide, selling more than three million albums, Botti has found a form of creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre. With Impressions and the albums that preceded it, Chris Botti has thoroughly established himself as one of the important, innovative figures of the contemporary music world.

‘His faintly jazz-inflected style — traceable to the Miles Davis of late-1950s vintage, around “Porgy and Bess” and “Kind of Blue” — luxuriates in melody and mood. He’s Sting-endorsed and Oprah-approved, with brooding looks that any camera seems to love.”
