If you were lucky enough to see Chris Botti live in concert in 2010 at the National theatre then 2011 at the Melbourne Jazz Festival was deja vu in the best way possible.
Simply electrifying Botti, his five piece band and two guests (including the stunning vocalist Lisa Fischer and violinist Caroline Campbell) kept the audience clicking, clapping and tapping.
Following a highly successful tour in 2010, Chris Botti the Trumpet King and his seven piece band return in 2011 as special guests of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival. Australian Stage’s Dione Joseph joins Botti in conversation to find out what brings the living legend back to our shores.
