Award-winning trumpeter Chris Botti started his music career at such a young age. His first significant exposure to the lively scene of jazz was when he became a part of the All-American High School Jazz band formed by McDonald. Botti also had his first performance at Carnegie Hall as a member of this ensemble. In his senior year of college, he left his studies and toured with legendary artists such as Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich. His versatile style with jazz and pop started to grow during this time.
When the 1990s came, he started to play with other big names like Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler, and Joni Mitchell. This also entailed the start of his solo career. In 1995, he released the album "First Wish" and was followed by "Midnight Without You" and "Slowing Down the World" during that decade. During the 2000s, he recorded with Columbia, catapulting him to greater prominence, topping jazz charts for consecutive years. As a result of this feat, he won the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album in 2013 for the album "Impressions."
