EventTicketDepot is playing the jazz and selling the blues with tickets to see musician Chris Botti perform. Chris's career is laced with influence and celebrities galore with success both critically and commercially.
His most prominent influence was his mother. A musician herself and teacher of the piano, she encouraged her son to start playing the trumpet at age nine. He admittedly fell in love with the music three years later when he heard the legendary Miles Davis playing My Funny Valentine. From there, his life of trumpeting took off.
He toured with jazz sensation Frank Sinatra in his last year of college along with Buddy Rich. Although he experienced music, he was a child and all the way up to adulthood, he really came into success in the 1990s with his jazz/pop music. It was then that he began recording and touring with singer Paul Simon of You Can Call Me Al fame. He has also performed with artists Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler, Joni Mitchel, and Sting. Sting even contributed vocals to his 1999 album, Slowing Down the World. He also toured with Sting for two years on his Brand New Day tour. It was during the '90s when he wrote and recorded an entire album for the Robert M. Young film, Caught.
From there he went to the Grammys. After winning a Grammy for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist in 2006, he was again nominated in 2007 for two Grammys and three more in 2009.
His commercial success includes multiple touring, being named one of People's 50 Most Beautiful, an on-air radio talent as well as television band leader for the Caroline Rhea Show, and three of his twelve albums have climbed to the number one spot on the Billboard Jazz Albums.
After years in the biz, this talented musician has nowhere else to go but up, up, up, and EventTicketDepot has all the venues, the tickets, and the best prices.
