THE VERY BEST OF CHRIS BOTTI collects from three of the jazz-pop trumpeter's albums: 1995's FIRST WISH, 1997's MIDNIGHT WITHOUT YOU, and 1999's SLOWING DOWN THE WORLD. Botti's music is strong on warm, evocative atmospheres, light grooves, and sweet melodies, and the artist's confident, lyrical tone is always a pleasure. Botti's music also easily crosses over into straight pop territory as "Midnight Without You" and vocal contributions from Jeff Lorber and Edie Brickell, among others, prove. THE VERY BEST is a convenient, stylish sampler of Botti's smooth, likeable jazz-pop
Artist Overview
Chris Botti rose to fame as a crackerjack session and touring trumpeter for the likes of Sting, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, and Natalie Merchant. A trained jazz musician, Botti's solo albums evoke a cool-jazz persona similar to Chet Baker, while his use of superstar guest-vocalists ensures Botti a place in the pop charts. Botti released TO LOVE AGAIN in 2005, a sequel to his popular 2004 duets album WHEN I FALL IN LOVE.
