Chris Botti’s trumpet skills are actually as good as his telegenic looks, even if he rarely puts them to use playing the kind of bop he cut his teeth on. A consummate showman, Botti presents his blend of smooth jazz-funk, glossily Miles-ian ballads, and assorted pop and classical chestnuts at the Blue Note through the first week of 2015. Shows tend to sell out early, so call first. (Special pricing applies on New Year's Eve: Early set is $145 and $85; late set, $175 and $95.)

Chis Botti is technically profficient and is surrounded by great musicians. The concert is however highly dissapointing if yku are expecting a jazz concert. It is something my grandma would approve of, nice music, well played. But why at the Blue note? The best venue for this type of music is the elevator. For those familiar with Europe, Chris Botti is a bit like André Rieux for classical music. That is, good looking, well executed and fit for the masses.
