"There are entertainers...and then there's Chris Botti" is the lead sentence in this glowing review of Botti and his band's recent performance at the Peace Center in Greenville, NC. "Elegant, gracious, generous" are all adjectives used by the writer to describe the suave bandleader.
The review includes video as well, with Botti displaying his gorgeous golden tone on "Ave Maria," "When I Fall in Love, " etc.
From the article -
"Botti and band showed no restraint with their jazz spread; neither did the audience with its thunderous applause, letting it be known they were pleased with the delivery of each solo effort and each terrific number.
The musicians blew the roof off with raucous and intensely edgy numbers, among them the “Look of Love,” which featured superb vocalist Smith, and Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue,” which gave each musician a turn at sonic glory."
