Chris Botti (Unknown)

Chris Botti

Impressions, trumpeter Chris Botti's new Columbia Records CD, 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 number one albums on Billboard's Jazz Albums listings. As he began his planning for the new album, he was determined to do some "familiar songs" for Impressions, songs that reached back to his fascination with the melody and balladry that have been essential to his music since he first picked up a trumpet. Songs such as "What A Wonderful World,' "Summertime" and "Over the Rainbow" certainly fulfill that desire. But the album's far-ranging program also encompasses many other areas, deeply influenced by conversations he had with fans during the busy, world-wide touring that keeps him on the road as much as 300 days a year.
