Chris Botti Tickets

Christopher Botti or Chris Botti is a trumpeter and composer; born in Portland, Oregon, and a native of Oregon. He plays a Martin Committee trumpet made in 1939, and uses a 3C silver plated mouthpiece from Bach made in 1926, having recently retired his 1920 Bach mouthpiece.

As of 2006, Botti has recorded eight solo albums. His first few efforts could safely be classified as smooth jazz, though critic Alex Henderson argues that Botti’s music was a cut above much of the genre; reviewing his 1999 effort, Slowing Down the World, Henderson writes “it would be a major mistake to lump it in with the outright elevator muzak that Kenny G, Dave Koz, Najee, and Richard Elliot were known for … Botti is capable of a lot more.” Though still featuring heavy contributions from pop music singers, Botti’s more recent albums have found him exploring more traditional jazz territory, with lush orchestral arrangements even earning comparisons to Gil Evans.
