Everyone is Falling for Chris Botti
Performing at the FirstEnergy Berks Jazz Festival, March 12
by Jonathan Widran

Pumped up about his show at the FirstEnergy Berks Jazz Festival on March 12, Chris Botti’s already-busy career has shot into stratospheric overdrive since he took the stage at this musical extravaganza last spring. For the first time, the popular trumpeter spent nearly all of 2004 on the road with his own band, touring the U.S., Europe and Japan, and opening a series of shows on the North American leg of Sting’s Sacred Love tour. Fueled by two appearances on Oprah—including a performance of “Someone To Watch Over Me” at the lavish wedding of a contest winner—and one on The Today Show in November, When I Fall In Love, Botti’s lush new album of standards, is enjoying the kind of crossover success and sales most smooth jazz artists can only dream of.
