Trumpet sensation Chris Botti has fans all over the world. Apparently, some of his most ardent listeners live in Poland, a place that’s never been known as a cool jazz hot spot.
“I first went to Poland in 2000 as part of Sting’s Brand New Day Tour,” says Botti, who’s in town this weekend to present a pops concert with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. “I was amazed at how warm and gracious everyone there was. So Poland has become a top priority for me, and I’ve been back 13 times since my first visit.”
