Trumpeter Chris Botti: Blowing His Horn To Worldwide Acclaim

Chris Botti

Through the 1980s and '90s, Chris Botti had a relatively successful career as an in-demand session musician and sideman, and as a composer and producer. Then, in 2001, after he signed to Columbia Records, the stars aligned; since that time he's gone from strength to strength garnering worldwide acclaim as a live performer and selling millions of records.

WRTI's Jim Cotter caught up with the superstar trumpeter when Botti was in town to play with The Philadelphia Orchestra.
