iTunes Review

On his sixth studio effort, Chris Botti commenced a significant career shift. He went from a first-call trumpeter and later bandleader with a hard-earned audience to “an instrumental star,” according to his former boss Sting (who here sings on a bossa nova version of his own “La Belle Dame Sans Regrets”). All but one track on this lush album features The London Session Orchestra, so it’s Botti’s first “with strings” project. Instead of recording just one or two standards, as he’d done previously, here he interprets eight, including the title track and Irving Berlin’s “What’ll I Do,” featuring vocals by singer/songwriter Paula Cole. He also successfully delves into classical crossover repertoire with Ennio Morricone's “Cinema Paradiso” and “Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro)." The bonus-track version features two additional numbers, including Faure’s “Pavane,” in which Botti revisits his occasional European classical pursuits.

Muy Bueno

I wish only persons with constructive reviews would submit theirs. At least give a reason why you think is garbage Cjulien91. Yes, we need classic jazz talent. Perhaps more drummers, bass and xylophone players. Not only trumpet and tenor sax smooth jazz performers. Nevertheless he is talented and should be acknowledge, is the grown-up thing to do if you so choose to submit a review. Like him or not. (By the way, is a really good CD....this coming from a Coltrane fan.

chris botti has made jazz great again

great album. great musician

Coming from a Paul Desmond fan

I was going to give this four stars; but I have to give it a five-star to balance the unfair reviews. Honestly, I think Chris Botti is probably the best trumpetist alive after Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, and Chet Baker. I have seen a couple of his concerts and by golly he is an excellent jazz trumpetist too. But instrumentalists like him have to do these pop stuff to keep themselves fed and alive. Music is a precarious existence, after all. Kudos to him.

Though best known as a contemporary jazz performer, trumpeter Chris Botti made his initial splash on the pop music scene.

After studying in the prestigious Indiana University music program under noted jazz educator David Baker, Botti relocated to New York, where he served with saxophonist George Coleman and trumpet great Woody Shaw.
