Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD, When I Fall In Love, Chris Botti has become the largest-selling American instrumental artist. His success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music, and his ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 jazz albums, as well as multiple Gold, Platinum and Grammy Awards.
His latest album Impressions won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental. Performing worldwide and selling more than four million albums, he has found a form of creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre. Hitting the road for as many as 300 days per year, the trumpeter has performed with some of the best musicians and vocalists, with the finest symphonies, and at some of the world’s most prestigious venues.
