Chris Botti: The Shape Of Jazz To Come

One of the most accomplished modern jazz musicians will be 3,000 miles away from home when he takes the stage in New Jersey. Portland, Oregon’s own trumpeter Chris Botti has seen great success in his 20-year career, but the last five years have been exceptional to Botti. Since 2010, he has received four GRAMMY nominations and finally notched a win in 2013 for Best Pop Instrumental Album. Botti will play at the MAYO Performing Arts Center in Morristown on Aug. 6, and the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood on Aug. 7.
