The breakout instrumental star of the past decade, he’s collaborated with a cross-section of A-list musicians, from Yo-Yo Ma and Herbie Hancock to Vince Gill and Mark Knopfler. But the secret to his success as a performer is his discerning ear for talent as a bandleader.
Trumpeter Chris Botti is a smooth operator. He has a smooth, bittersweet tone on his instrument.
Mr. Botti’s work functions both on the level of flickering intimacy and thundering grandiosity. He’s adept at exuding human warmth on a sweeping scale.
— New York Times
Iconic trumpeter and composer Chris Botti has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music. His ongoing association with PBS has led to four number one jazz albums, as well as multiple Grammy Award nominations, with a win for Best Pop Instrumental Album for Impressions.

Hitting the road for as many as 300 days per year, the trumpeter has also performed with many of the finest symphonies and at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, from Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl to the Sydney Opera House and the Real Teatro di San Carlo in Italy.
Chris Botti has thoroughly established himself as one of the most important, innovative figures of the contemporary music world.
