Chris Botti: Live With Orchestra & Special Guests Wilshire Theatre LA PBS Special 2005 DVD 2006 16:9 DTS 5.1

Chris Botti Live With Orchestra & Special Guests shot December 1 and 2, 2005, at LA's fabled Wilshire Theatre, inspired the Los Angeles Times Don Heckman to write, "It was apparent, from the first notes Chris Botti played at the Wilshire Theatre on Friday, that the sold-out house was in for a special evening...Botti's latest album, To Love Again -- as well as the previously released When I Fall In Love -- features extraordinary lineups of vocal guest artists.  

Six showed up for the concert -- Sting, Jill Scott, Paula Cole, Renee Olstead, Paul Buchanan and Gladys Knight -- along with Burt Bacharach ...despite the inevitable audience excitement generated by the appearance of such vocal headliners and despite the artists' diversity of interpretations, it was Botti's virtuosic trumpet work, his inventive melody-making, his engaging onstage presence and his powerful band ...that ruled the evening..."

Fresh off the success of his Gold Certified album When I Fall in Love and its record breaking follow-up To Love Again comes a concert featuring trumpeter Chris Botti at the peak of his musical prowess. Compiled from two triumphant concerts staged over two nights at the Wilshire Theater, this release finds Botti performing a variety of hits from his two most recent releases while backed by a full orchestra and his own accomplished band. Special guest appearances by Sting, Paula Cole, Burt Bacharach, Gladys Knight and more make this concert an event that is certain to be enjoyed by both jazz and pop fans alike. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
