Chris Botti Background

Born in Portland, Oregon, and raised in Corvallis, Chris Botti also spent two years in Italy as a child. When he was 17, Botti wound up attending Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon, by persuading his high school to let him complete his senior year there. It was at Mount Hood where he performed with Todd Field, pal, trombonist and prospective Academy Award-nominated filmmaker.

After he graduated from high school, Botti went on to study under the guidance of David Baker and Bill Adam. Baker was a jazz educator and Adam was a trumpet professor at Indiana University. Botti garnered two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, which opened the door for him to study with Woody Shaw (trumpeter) and George Coleman (saxophonist) spanning two summer breaks in a row.

During his senior year at Indiana University, Botti left to pursue tours with Buddy Rich and Frank Sinatra. In 1985, he relocated to the Big Apple to polish his craft as a studio musician. Five years later, he launched a decade-long touring and recording arrangement with Paul Simon. Botti was able to gain wide exposure to other singers through this opportunity. During that stint, he also collaborated with gifted artists like Joni Mitchell, Scritti Politti, Roger Daltrey, Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Natalie Merchant, Bette Midler and many others.

While on tour with Simon, he was introduced to Michael Brecker—a saxophonist. The introduction sparked the release of the Brecker Brothers' Out of the Loop album. The album garnered a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Performance.

In 1995, First Wish arrived, which was Botti's solo debut. His sophomore album, Midnight Without You, was issued in 1997. These works were followed by Slowing Down The World (1999).The prolific artist additionally served as a member of Bruford Levin Upper Extremities. The experimental, jazz band put out the score for the flick, Caught (1996).

Later on, Botti met Bobby Colomby, who introduced him to Columbia Records. Colomby, the drummer and original member of Blood, Sweat & Tears, became Botti's manager and producer. Night Sessions (2001) was Botti's debut Columbia release. A year later, he cut December - a holiday album - which featured a Richard Marx composition. It was the first and only time Botti ever lent his vocals to a project.

In 2003, Botti came out with A Thousand Kisses Deep. The album included a number of originals and covers that highlighted Botti's appeal as both a pop and jazz artist. The album was followed by When I Fall In Love a year later. In 2005, Botti issued To Love Again: The Duets. And in 2006, Chris Botti Live: With Orchestra and Special Guests was his first PBS collaboration. The album and platinum-certified DVD illuminated duets with notable artists like Jill Scott, Gladys Knight, Burt Bacharach, Sting and Renee Olstead. Italia came out in 2007, which highlighted Botti's Italian heritage, including tunes like Venice, Estate and Ave Maria. At the end of 2007, the album received a Grammy nod for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

Two years later, Chris Botti in Boston was released. The album contained a performance with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Botti took the stage with famous artists like John Mayer, Sting, Josh Groban, Steven Tyler, Yo Yo Ma and Katharine McPhee. In 2011, Chris Botti released his solo album, This Is Chris Botti.
