Chris Botti Christopher Stephen Botti (I think it rhymes with goatee) b. Oct. 12th, 1962, (which makes him even older than me!) Portland, Oregon. Trumpeter and composer, plays trumpet and – er – composes. This photo is from the cover of his 2003 album A Thousand Kisses Deep, a commission from a lovely lady in Sioux City, Iowa. She seems to be a fan, she previously bought this (from 2016)… So it’s trumpets, is it? Satchmo (from Satchelmouth), Louis Armstrong, and Dizzy Gillespie. Where would music be without these guys? (and bizarrely flexible cheeks) Miles Davis and Harry James; similar times, different styles. Satch and Ms Fitzgerald. Maybe Ella should stick to singing?
