Exclusive interview with Grammy-award winning trumpeter Chris Botti

Louisa Lee


Smoothly merging the sounds of improvisation, jazz musicians are known for breaking musical rules and boundaries, with not a show of redundant tunes. That is what CGTN host Louisa Lee experienced when Grammy-award winning trumpeter Chris Botti and his band played in China's capital, Beijing.

Prior to their highly engaging performance that ended with a standing ovation, Louisa sat down with Botti, who is currently on his world tour to promote his latest album, Vol. 1. They discussed the extensive list of A-list stars Botti has played with during his career that has spanned nearly three decades, with Botti crediting legendary musician Sting for helping him unlock his musical potential to the fullest. Botti also shared with Louisa about his newest jazz-centric album, his experiences playing in various Chinese cities, including Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing, and his devoted fans who have truly touched his heart. By assembling a talented crew (Leo Amuedo, Chad LB, Dan Chmielinski, John Splithoff, Julian Pollack, Lee Pearson, Anastasia Mazurok) for the world to hear, Botti's concerts left the audience asking for more.

Don't miss out on the exclusive interview with the jazz sensation and the soul-stirring performance that generated waves of emotions.
