Editors’ Notes

While “Impressions“ is also the title of a John Coltrane composition, Chris Botti’s ninth studio album is an unofficial homage to the saxophone titan’s former boss Miles Davis. As a 12-year-old, Botti was inspired to study and play jazz after hearing a Davis recording of “My Funny Valentine.” Here, the Oregon native performs two numbers popularized by the trumpet legend, plus Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo’s “En Aranjuez con tu Amor” and the Gershwins’ “Summertime,” featuring David Foster on piano. The opening track is an ambitious take on Chopin’s “Prelude No. 20 in C Minor” backed by a jazz rhythm section and orchestra. Botti also collaborates with piano great Herbie Hancock (a member of Davis’ "second great quintet") to write and perform the ambitious “Tango Suite.”

Customer Reviews

Bravo Chris Botti! Bravo!!

I'm always excited to learn that Chris Botti has released a new CD. He's a phenomenal musician who always captivates me with his musicality and sincerity! "Impressions" doesn't disappoint. I haven't stopped listening to it since it's release. The guest artists are amazing...fantastic compliments to a first class musician. My favorites Prelude No. 20 in C Minor, Oblivion and Sevdah -- Great job!


Chris always had great tone and production, you won't be disappointed here. This does however have one long "drone" sound to it. There are some great songs here, but they are lost in a sea of "mundane". Would like to hear a mix of this sound with some of the old grooves from "a Thousand kisses deep" and "night Sessions".
