Chris Botti : When I Fall in Love

Trumpeter Chris Botti drops the synthesizers and drum loops of his previous effort "Thousand Kisses Deep" for a more elegant and traditional sound on "When I Fall in Love".
Mixing standards and contemporary pop tunes all in a straight-ahead style, Chris Botti gives his minimalist Miles-ian horn sound a chance to breath and be enjoyed on its own. But it's not just the standards that impress. Chris Botti turns the Sade classic "No Ordinary Love" into a moody and atmospheric paean that wouldn't sound out of place on "Kind of Blue". Similarly, Sting's "La Belle Dame Sans Regrets" -- featuring the ex-Police front man -- brilliantly combines hardcore jazz improvisation on a radio-friendly modern Latin ballad. Botti should also be commended for choosing a stellar group of backing musicians.
