From the young age of 12, Chris Botti knew he would be a career trumpeter after hearing the sounds of Miles Davis. A successful musical career is an understatement for the type of impact Chris Botti has made on the industry. Botti played with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Joni Mitchell at the beginning of his career, followed in the 90s with Paul Simon for an extended period of time and later with Sting. Botti believes he would not be the musician he is today without the strong relationships he formed with the incredible singers and musicians he was honored to play alongside of. The lessons he learned from the experiences in his early career shaped his success as a solo artist.
Botti launched his first album Night Sessions in 2001 and from that point on became a staple on the jazz and contemporary music scene. With collaborations over the last 20 years with performers such as Stephen Tyler, John Mayer, Sting, Andrea Bocelli, and Herbie Hancock, to name a few, Botti created a space within contemporary music for the smooth sounds of jazz. Following Night Sessions came eight more successful records, including Chris Botti in Boston (2003), Italia (2007) and his most recent, Grammy winning album, Impressions (2012). Four albums reached #1 on the Billboard’s Jazz Albums listings. Botti continues to tour worldwide, taking his impressive musicality to fans of all music genres.
