Typical Chris Botti...
on January 24, 2005
If you're looking for an album that has many different themes, then this is not for you. This album is composed of ballads and jazz standards (When I Fall in Love, My Romance, Someone To Watch Over Me...) He also follows "Smooth Jazz protocol" by remaking Sade's No Ordinary Love, which will get him some air play on radio. It's a little dry and he doesn't "stretch out" or place his own "touch" on the standards.
Chris Botti is a great Trumpet Player, but he lacks the depth, and emotion of a Terrence Blanchard, Wynton Marsalis, or Wallace Roney.
If you're a fan of smooth jazz, you will probaly enjoy this album. I was left wanting a little more...
