MORE CHRIS, LESS EVERYONE ELSE.

Wife and I went to his concert at the Wiltern. I bought the tickets a while ago so I was very much looking forward to it. I play the horn too and I've always loved his music. That said, it was kind of like a "Chris Botti and Friends" concert. He had 5 "special guests", all of whom were very talented but none of which I had ever heard of. I have no idea what the percentage of time was dedicated to him playing his horn as opposed to all the other folks performing, but it seemed about 50/50. In short, I bought tickets to see Chris Botti and not the other folks. I get the special guest thing but I would have preferred to hear more of the person I paid to see. I won't go to another of his concerts as a result and I'll just play him on my system.

CHRIS BOTTI CHICAGO THEATER

We attended Chris Botti's concert at the Chicago Theater on June 10. Chris Botti is a world-class trumpet musician. He was accompanied by equally phenomenal musicians and vocalists. He played various types of music during the concert ranging from jazz, pop, and classical. The musicality of the performers is amazing. While I was looking forward to this concert for many months, I did not enjoy it. Why? The sound technician at the Chicago Theater did a horrible job. The sound was not adjusted or balanced properly. This audio engineer did the worse job of sound equalization that I have ever heard at any performance. I would attend another Botti concert with the same performers, but not if the same audio engineer was in charge.

TODAY’S TORTURE

I attended Mr Botti’s performance last evening with my father in law. My expectations of a world renowned trumpeter with such accolades were sadly disappointed. Why in today’s world must performers drift so far away from the beauty of what once was the subject? The actual beauty of the music. It’s as if Mr. Botti is in a competition with himself, not realizing or recognizing the power and substance of jazz in its purest form. While surrounded by incredible musicians of such talent and structure, I found the concert incredibly tainted by the guest performances, desperately needing to have their moment in the sun, and ignoring the structure of a band’s performance. My father in law and I were dumbfounded as to why these incredible pieces of work from the creators of jazz had to be performed in such a manner. Filled with all of the shtick and commercial influenced productions one would experience on a 3 day budget cruise line. I was not expecting a Kenny G concert.
