Since the 2004 release of his critically acclaimed, When I Fall In Love, Chris Botti (Boat-Tee) has become the largest selling American jazz instrumentalist. He followed the #1 album with 3 gold records and 2 groundbreaking platinum DVD’s, fueled by his ongoing relationship with PBS.
Botti is a native of Oregon who was born in Portland, raised in Corvallis, and spent two years of his childhood growing up in Italy. His earliest musical influence was his mother, a classically trained pianist and part-time piano teacher. He began playing trumpet at age 9 and, after hearing a recording of Miles Davis playing "My Funny Valentine," realized the instrument was his key to "doing something meaningful with my life." He pursued his music studies with a succession of outstanding teachers including Professor Bill Adam and Dave Baker in Indiana.
In the studio and on stage, Chris Botti has worked with such leading singer-songwriter/composers as Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Sting and renowned film composer John Barry, among others; as a sideman, he has appeared on dozens of albums, compilations and soundtracks. Botti's association with Sting--who appeared on Botti's To Love Again and When I Fall In Love--dates back to 1999, when the trumpeter joined the pop legend's band as featured soloist on the "Brand New Day" tour, which lasted two years.
Released in 2007, Italia, Chris Botti’s most recent studio album, links the worlds of jazz and pop and classical music in a suite of songs and music inspired by the romance of Italy. Featuring duets with Andrea Bocelli, Paula Cole and Dean Martin. Since then, Chris Botti has toured constantly, stopping only to tape his second PBS Special, DVD and Blu-ray release, Chris Botti In Boston, in September of 2008.
Chris Botti In Boston was shot in beautiful high definition video September 18th and 19th, 2008, over a Thursday - Friday run at Symphony Hall in Boston with Keith Lockhart conducting The Boston Pops. Botti, along with incredible, world famous artists Sting, Lucia Micarelli, John Mayer, Josh Groban, Katharine McPhee, Yo-Yo Ma, Steven Tyler, and Sy Smith gave masterful performances selecting material different from the repertoire one might associate with them. This RIAA platinum-certified concert DVD is now available on CD, a CD/DVD package and Blu-ray edition.
One of the world's most popular concert attractions, Chris Botti maintains one of the busiest touring schedules monitored by the industry. Performing more than 250 concerts this past year, Chris’s 2008 concert itinerary included concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Carnegie Hall.
