Chris Botti Background
Botti spent his childhood in Oregon, and he was surrounded by musical influences from an early age. His mother was a classically
trained pianist who also taught piano, and Botti spent his childhood mesmerized by the beautiful sounds that certain instruments
could produce. He was nine years old when he picked up the trumpet for the first time, the instrument that he would later
become famous for playing. A few years after he started practicing the trumpet, Botti heard Miles Davis play "My Funny Valentine",
and he was immediately enamored with the instrument, and this one moment solidified his decision to continue practicing the
trumpet. During his high school years, Botti earned one of the coveted spots in the All American High School Jazz Band, which
would give him his first opportunity to perform at the iconic Carnegie Hall. By the time he graduated high school, Botti was
already one of the most esteemed trumpeters in the US.
After spending several years at Indiana University, Botti dropped
out in order to embark on tours with Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich. In the wake of these incredible tours, Botti decided to
move to New York so that he could become a session musician. By the time the '90s rolled around, Chris Botti had already made
a fantastic name for himself, and before he knew it he was touring with artists like Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler, Natalie
Cole, Joni Mitchell, and more. For years, Chris Botti was one of the most coveted trumpeters to have on tours, and eventually
he decided that he needed to work on his own solo projects in addition to touring with major artists. In 1995, he released
his debut album, First Wish, and he never looked back. Chris Botti has released numerous solo albums, almost all of which
have met with enormous critical praise. Now he is gearing up for a massive round of highly anticipated solo shows, and you
could find a spot in the audience right here on StubHub!
Since releasing his debut album,
First Wish, in 1995, Chris Botti has released nine more studio albums. His highest charting album to date is To Love Again:
The Duets (2005), which peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 200 and at number one o the US jazz chart. His live album,
Chris Botti in Boston, also fared phenomenally well on the charts; it peaked at number 13 in the US and went on to earn platinum
certification in the US and diamond certification in Poland. There is no doubt that Chris Botti can churn out some mind-blowing
jazz tunes, and now you can see him perform them live in concert thanks to StubHub!
