Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Somewhere, Kenny G is hiding behind his cascading ringlets in shame. Chris Botti, a jazz world super-talent whose trumpeting earns frequent comparisons to Miles Davis and Chet Baker, has found the formula for classing up the pop charts, and within it there's not a single soaring sax or tired attempt at career revivalism to be found. What we're treated to instead is an all-star lineup (Sting, Gladys Knight, Michael Buble and others) vocally saluting a musician whose resume reads like a page torn out of the Rock Snob's Dictionary: in addition to touring with Sting, Botti has played sideman to Paul Simon, Natalie Merchant, Joni Mitchell, and dozens more. Here that experience pays off handsomely. Gone are the matinee-idol smooth artist's earlier experiments with jazz synthesizers and pop-fusion compositions (see 2002's Night Sessions for those), and present in their place are his classical instincts. Gil Evans might have been his guide as the unmistakable opener "Embraceable You," one of a handful of instrumental tracks, swirls into the enchanting, ultra-sophisticated "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life," for instance, and listeners need not feel like fogies for loving it. If Steven Tyler can sign on to sing along with a traditional arrangement of Charlie Chaplin's "Smile" while the London Session Orchestra lays down its trademark jazz lushness behind him, after all, you can let down your guard long enough to admit this disc leaves you feeling vaguely dreamy. --Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly Beautiful! October 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Chris Botti, a trumpeter-extraordinaire, has done it again after the success of "When I Fall In Love," my top favorite of all his albums which to date is #4 on Billboard Top 25 Albums. "To Love Again" is nothing but one of the best recordings of all-time. The CD Audio Side features Mr. Botti's thirteen attention-grabbing performances with his guest artists - Sting, Michael Bublé, Paula Cole, Gladys Knight, Jill Scott, Renee Olstead, Rosa Passos and Steven Tyler, with the London Session Orchestra conducted by Jeremy Lubbock, Billy Childs and Gil Goldstein.

The DVD Side showcases the entire CD tracks and four fabulous live performances and these are: "Flamenco Sketches" with guest saxophonist David Sanborn, "To Love Again," "I'll Be Seeing You" and "Milestones." The live performers include Billy Childs (piano), Anthony Wilson (guitar), Billy Kilson (drums) and Robert Hurst (bass). It's so nice to watch him on this DVD and see before your eyes how good he really is in his craft. He could well be in the league of the greatest trumpet players of all-time.

His most impressive trumpet virtuosity can be heard in his spellbinding renditions of all-instrumental-tracks from the repertoire: George and Ira Gershwin's "Embraceable You," the title track "To Love Again," "I'll Be Seeing You," which features Billy Childs on piano, and "What's New?" These beautiful works of art call for your welcoming ears and undivided attention to perfectly capture their charms!

Paula Cole, a Grammy awardee for the Best New Artist in 1998, steals the limelight with her emotionally-charged and superb vocals on "My One And Only Love," making it my new favorite version of this great song arranged by one of my favorite arrangers of all-time, Jeremy Lubbock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album -- I'd give it 10 stars if I could! December 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
To Love Again is Botti's follow-up to last year's collection of romantic standards, When I Fall In Love. That album was primarily a collection of lushly orchestrated instrumentals that showcased Botti's breathtaking skill with the trumpet, supplemented by select duets with Paula Cole and Sting. In contrast, To Love Again features vocalists from across the musical spectrum duetting with Botti on nine of the disc's thirteen tracks. My favorite duet tracks include Michael Buble' singing "Let There Be Love" and Renee Olstead singing "Pennies from Heaven." The arrangements of both songs positively sparkle and give Botti a chance to really cut loose and swing with his trumpet. Botti's trumpet playing is often likened to Chet Baker's mellow sounds, but on these tracks I found the collaborations reminiscent of the type of recording Harry James and Tommy Dorsey used to do with their bands...the vocalists (stars in their own rights) complemented the music, and vice-versa. Olstead's performance is particularly noteworthy...her outstanding vocal skill has grown by leaps and bounds since the release of her self-titled jazz album last year. Each of the duets on this disc are perfect examples of an ideal give-and-take relationship between the vocal and the trumpet...one never seeks to overwhelm the other, which makes the listening experience absolutely intoxicating (some of Sinatra's concept albums that he recorded for Capitol Records - particularly ones arranged by Nelson Riddle - are excellent examples of this effect). To Love Again is a brilliantly executed album and I cannot wait to see the artistic heights Chris Botti takes his listeners to with his next offering!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!! December 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Only recently have I discovered the beautiful music of Chris Botti. Now, I have to find all of the older cds. To Love Again is an awesome cd. What stands out is, of course, the beautiful sounds this man can get out of a horn.

There are a couple of tracks that have quickly become favorites. First, is Michael Buble's, Let There Be Love. This man has a absolutely wonderful voice. Then, there is What Are You Doing The Rest of My Life with Sting. Wonderful.

If you love beautiful music played in that smooth style of pop and jazz, you have to get this one. I know I will be listening to it for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chris Botti is "Dave Sanborn+Rick Braun" August 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I now own three (3)Chris Botti CDs: When I Fall in Love; To Fall in Love and Midnight Without you.

I will say this: No, Chris Botti is neither Miles Davis nor Wynton Marsalis! He is neither of their stature nor in their class. And, he knows this!

The truth is that when his fans compare Chris to these true Jazz Greats, it becomes way too easy to dismiss Chris as a young and much less talented "wanna be!" Thus, these comparisons are fundamentally unfair to Chris. So, stop the madness!

The real truth is that Chris Botti is a wonderful musician in his own right, in his own class, and he has his own style.

His choices of vocalists are wonderful! Sting and Jill Scott and Paula Coles just seem to belong on his CDs!

I appreciate Chris and enjoy what he is now contributing to the field of 21st Century Music!

Format:Audio CD
Chris Botti, a trumpeter-extraordinaire, has done it again after the success of "When I Fall In Love," my top favorite of all his albums, which charted #4 on Billboard Top 25 Albums when it was released.

His very latest offering Italia (CD/DVD digipak Fan Pack) is also making waves at the jazz scene today. Please check it out, and I guarantee you will have an exquisite listening experience. It is dramatically and irresistibly beautiful and romantic!
