Botti, a trumpeter and composer, has over the course of three decades become one of the most respected and top-selling musicians in the U.S.
Since the release of his 2004 album “When I Fall in Love” Botti has earned the designation of the largest-selling American instrumental artist, according to his bio.
“His success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music and his ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 jazz albums, as well as multiple gold, platinum and Grammy awards.”
Botti’s 2012 album, “Impressions,” won him the Grammy for best pop instrumental album. The CD features collaborations with some respected musicians from a range on genres.
“Playing with his uniquely expressive sound and soaring musical imagination, Botti is joined on the disc by featured artists Andrea Bocelli, Vince Gill, Herbie Hancock, Mark Knopfler, and David Foster in a warm, intimate celebration of melodic balladry,” the bio states.
During his career Botti has performed with other established artists, including Sting, Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, Josh Groban, Yo-Yo Ma, Michael Bublé, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, John Mayer and Steven Tyler.
“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,” the bio states.
Botti performs at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9. Tickets range in price from $61.92 to $88 and are available online at www1.ticketmaster.com.
