Fresh off his 2013 Grammy® win for Best Pop Musical Album, incomparable jazz trumpeter Chris Botti visits the Capital Region for a stellar night of entertainment.

With his uniquely expressive sound and soaring musical imagination, Botti shares his unmatched mastery in a warm, intimate celebration of melodic balladry. Botti has performed around the world and with legendary artists Andrea Bocelli, Herbie Hancock and Vince Gill.

Three of his albums have reached the top spot on the Billboard jazz charts, and this Carnegie Hall veteran recently performed with such greats as Josh Groban and Steven Tyler in his own PBS special Chris Botti in Boston.

“Watching artists like Sting and Paul and Joni Mitchell,” explains Botti, “how they get in and out of songs, how they introduce people, whether they would do this or that sort of thing, what they would say about one of their players. All that was a huge asset for me. I wouldn’t be the performer I am today without that background.”
