Web exclusive: Botti bravado 


Chris Botti
Murat Centre
Thursday, Feb. 22

Chris Botti didn’t disappoint his legions of local fans last Thursday at the Murat. Botti only had one change in the band, pianist Peter Martin, who is a sensitive complement to Botti’s introspective style. Guitarist Mark Whitfield was a perfect foil musically and for some breakup humor between the two.

Botti opened the concert backed by Martin with a somber and almost reverent version of “Ave Maria.” Vocalist Sy Smith, who is guitarist Whitfield’s cousin, gave a credible showing in her brief appearance. Botti’s trumpet sound was a joy of ripeness that glistened as he performed meticulous tunes from his chart-topping recent two CDs.
