Trumpeter Chris Botti is a gifted performer, a talented composer, and a charismatic performer who--since the release of his primary solo album in 1995-- Chris Botti has created a series of recordings that have made him a virtual genre-of-one in the realm of modern jazz. Through a singular mixture of lush atmospheres and considerate improvisations, Chris Botti has earned both critical acclaim and mainstream appreciation.
On his latest collection, When I Fall In Love, the best-selling trumpet virtuoso expand the range of his earlier work with an album loyal to once and future classic love songs, each one perform with Chris Botti's impeccable taste and signature tonal qualities.
Featuring guest vocal performances from Paula Cole ("What'll I Do" & "How Love Should Be") and Sting ("La Belle Dame Sans Regrets"), When I Fall In Love reunite Botti with legendary producer/musician Bobby Colomby, who helmed Botti's 2002 cyclic collection, December. Botti is accompany by the London Session Orchestra on all but one of the new album's tracks and the consequence is a lush and sultry sojourn into the extremely heart of romance. When I Fall In Love is mixed by the multiple Grammy-winning engineer Al Schmitt with arrangements by Jeremy Lubbock, Billy Childs and Gil Goldstein.
"When Don Ienner (President and CEO of Sony Music Label Group, U.S.) makes a proposal that is also a personal dream, I know that I'm truly blessed," writes Botti, telling the album's genesis in his liner notes to When I Fall In Love. "We agreed a footage of romantic music allowing an escape from life's daily anxieties would be a timely remedy for listeners and truly strange at this point in time. I have often been seduced by the melody of a nice song. That these melodies often play to our idea of what romance is, or how it feels, is something that captivates and inspires me when I play. I'm thankful I've been given the opportunity to reach into that peaceful, inspiring moment and share it with others.
On his new album, Chris Botti, lately picked as one of People magazine's "2004’s 50 Most good-looking People," breathes new soul and magic into classic pop penned by Irving Berlin ("What'll I Do?"), Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart ("My Romance"), Ira and George Gershwin ("Someone To Watch Over Me"), Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer ("One For My Baby And One More For The Road") and others. When I Fall In Love also includes the modern standard, Sade's "No Ordinary Love," and the centerpiece track, "Time to Say Goodbye (Con te Partiro)," a classically-inspired song that entered the public consciousness in 1997 with Andrea Bocelli's hit version. "It's a part of music which most fans of pit have never seen me dive into," Botti offers. It's this kind of approximately regal classical approach to playing trumpet and it's probably the song on the album that I am the most proud of as a player."
One more stand-out track on the album is "Cinema Paradiso," written by Ennio Morricone and Andrea Morricone. "The object was to do all your preferred romantic songs and, if I had to pick one, it would be the love theme to the movie 'Cinema Paradiso," says Chris. "That movie spoke to me…and it still does." While providing fresh interpretation of some of the world's maximum love songs, Chris Botti creates new pop standards of his own with songs like "La Belle Dame Sans Regrets," written by Dominic Miller and Sting (who sings on the track).
Chris Botti, who opened a series of shows on the North American leg of Sting's "Sacred Love" tour in January-March, 2004, will caption his own stateside gigs in support of When I Fall In Love before once again gap for Sting on a European tour running from October 29 through December 9. Early 2005 will have Chris Botti on the road again, this time distribution a bill with Josh Groban on 35 gigs starting January 25 and organization through March 19.
