A titan of contemporary jazz, Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Chris Botti is one of the world’s largest selling jazz instrumentalists. Four of his albums have reached number one on Billboard’s Jazz Albums listings, with his smooth, calming tone an instantly recognizable voice in the jazz world

Botti seemed destined to become a musician. Born in Portland, Oregon, he was encouraged to pursue music by his mother, a concert pianist. When Botti was twelve, he reached a critical turning point when he heard Miles Davis play “My Funny Valentine.” The impact it had not only persuaded him to make a lifetime commitment to the trumpet – it also launched the affection for melody, space and balance that have been intrinsic aspects of Botti’s musical vision.
