Chris Botti
Date 5/1/2014Time 7:30 PM

Description:
Presented by The Shedd Institute

Chris Botti has found a form of creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre. Born in Portland, Botti was 12 when he heard Miles Davis play "My Funny Valentine." The impact it had not only persuaded him to make a life time commitment to the trumpet, it also launched the affection for melody, space and balance that have been intrinsic aspects of Botti’s musical vision. After studying with jazz educator David Baker, the great trumpet teacher Bill Adam, jazz trumpeter Woody Shaw and jazz saxophonist George Coleman, he moved to New York in the mid-‘80s.
His early career was spent crafting his skills in settings reaching from the Buddy Rich Big Band and Frank Sinatra to Natalie Cole and Joni Mitchell. Throughout the ‘90s and into the new century, Botti played extensively with Paul Simon, and had an especially creative association with Sting.
His success has led to four #1 jazz albums, as well as multiple Gold, Platinum, and Grammy Awards. Since the release of his critically acclaimed I Fall in Love, Botti has become the largest selling American jazz instrumental artist.
 
He has it all: a big, rich warm sound, dazzling technique (that he doesn’t overuse) and seemingly effortless range.
