I heard Chris Botti and Vince Gill perform "Losing You" on Good Morning America. I was so taken by the song I ordered the CD -- not knowing how I would like the rest of the album. To say I was pleasantly surprised doesn't begin to describe how happy I was with the album. It was an introduction to a completely different kind of music than I normally listen to, and I was captivated. I almost felt as though I had been transported to a higher plane. How had I missed this performer and his talents for so many years. I'll be looking into his other albums.

Chris brings a variety of songs to the table this time, all brought alive with the gorgeous tone of his trumpet. Highlights on the CD include the sexy, slow burning Oblivion, the spicy Tango Suite that has the wonderful piano intertwined with Chris's trumpet, the haunting Prelude No. 20 in C Minor, the classic Summertime that he took on and made his own, and Sevdah, a track that I'd like to point out among the bunch because his trumpet playing is very smooth and beautiful there. He hits an amazing high note in that song. This CD is a wonderfully crafted piece of work. Chris never disappoints. Impressions hasn't left my CD player since I bought it.

Stumbled upon this man's music via Pandora. Without hesitation, within
his first few trumpet notes and hearing his tone I knew I was going to
buy this collection of songs. I did and I've no regrets. I like that the entire
collection has a mellow "time to relax now" theme to it rather than
mood swings some artist do to show case their talent.

I don't think there is anyone better on the scene today. I have most of his CD's and have enjoyed seeing him twice in person. I think he is fabulous and recommend all of his CD's highly.

If you are a fan of Chris Botti, this production will not disappoint. Not only the "hauntingly beautiful" sounds from Chris (as described by Madeline Albright), but the addition of Leonardo Amuedo who adds a wonderful influence to each song in which he is involved, makes this a CD unlike the others before. I truly don't understand how he can produce music that speaks to each person so intimately (and yet be so fun in concert too! :) )

When I first listened to Chris Botti's "Impressions" album, I wasn't sure what to think of it. There was an opera song, a country song (Randy Newman composer and Vince Gill singer and, of course, Chris Botti trumpeter) and a variety of other musical genres on this album. Quite different from the other Botti albums I have and love a lot.

But after listening to this CD a few times, I seriously fell in love with it. "Losing You" stayed in my head for days. "Per Te" (For You) featuring Andrea Bocelli then captured my mind; I couldn't wait to hear it again. Then "Sevdah" started to be part of my everyday existence. And Mark Knopfler singing "What A Wonderful World" was just sheer happiness.

Wow! Everything on this CD is truly beautiful.

Impressions it is. Yes.

It's all about Chris Botti, his trumpet and his judgment in choosing the magnificent artists with whom he collaborated on this album.
He is an artist.

I went to see Chris at a smaller theater and was blown away at what a good show it was. And was hoping for that same energy in the CD. This is one to play at night when you want to just veg. or fall asleep. He's wonderful in person though! And I was irritated that one of the songs wouldn't even play. I gave it to a friend who copied it and left that song out.

I am a new fan of Botti. I ordinarily listen to jazz, rock, blues, pop, and other more electric genres. But Botti possesses the most gorgeous tone I've heard in a long time. He is clearly a master of his instrument. If you listen to Miles you will know how tone can make music so enjoyable. Botti has so much control, you hear him 'strangle' notes in a way that Miles would do seemingly by accident--a kind of muffled smearing of the note that is part of the modern trumpet lexicon. Botti does it with pure intent. Listen to "En Aruanjuez Con Tu Amor," which is built on the same melody that Miles used on "Sketches of Spain." I love the recapitulation of the theme by the full orchestra, especially the glissandos by the horn section.
Another standout is Herbie Hancock's "Tango Suite." As characteristic of Hancock, the melody is elliptical and stretches your ears with quixotic chords that question, more than resolve. There is a sense of questing here, and the melody never quite finds a resting place. Herbie himself plays a typically brilliant cadenza in the middle before the orchestra returns. Then Chris enters, restates and spars with Herbie as they go on to reach a new climax with the orchestra.
Another highlight is Vince Gill's vocal work on "Losing You." His singing is heartfelt, and soulful.
Also contributing mightily to the whole work is the guitar of Leonardo Amuedo. His tone is also as beautiful as Botti's, and serves as a perfect foil and partner for Chris. Amuedo's classical guitar's tone is full and rich as he and weaves in, and counters Chris at perfect intervals.
Overall, I enjoy this album tremendously for its sound as well as its melodies and arrangements.
