Grammy winning music artist, trumpeter and music writer, Chris Botti fills the evening with expressive sound and soaring musical imagination. When he was 12, he heard Miles Davis play “My Funny Valentine” and he knew then that he wanted to make a life commitment to the trumpet and to melody. He crafted his skills in settings reaching the Buddy Rich Big Band and Frank Sinatra, Natalie Cole and Joni Mitchell. Including his ongoing musical touring he has also performed at the White House. In a recent album he reached back to musical favorites like “What a Wonderful World,” “Summertime,” and “Over the Rainbow.” www.ste-michelle.com or 425.488.1133.
