Chris Botti has teamed up with singer-songwriter John Splithoff on the new single “Paris” from Botti’s forthcoming Blue Note debut Vol. 1, due out October 20.

Known for hit indie pop songs including “Sing to You,” “Show Me,” and “Raye,” Splithoff’s romantic bossa-flavored song “Paris” is an ideal showcase for Botti’s elegant melodicism and lustrous tone. Botti introduced Vol. 1 with the prior singles “Old Folks” and “My Funny Valentine” featuring violinist Joshua Bell.

Botti has been one of the most popular instrumentalists in the world for nearly three decades. He has collaborated with some of the biggest superstars in the world including Sting, Paul Simon, Barbra Streisand, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler, Joni Mitchell, Andrea Bocelli, Herbie Hancock, Yo-Yo Ma, and others. Additionally, he’s topped the jazz charts with numerous albums, earned multiple Gold and Platinum records, performed with symphony orchestras and on prestigious stages from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl to the Sydney Opera House.

In short, Chris Botti needs no introduction. Yet with his Blue Note Records debut, he’s offering one anyway. Vol. 1 is in many ways a fresh start for the trumpeter. Having successfully crossed over from jazz renown to pop stardom, Botti’s first album in more than a decade finds him crossing back, with a small group project focused on acoustic jazz and classic standards.

Botti will be touring extensively across the U.S. this fall including the return of his beloved Annual Holiday Residency at the storied Greenwich Village jazz club Blue Note New York where he’ll be performing from December 11 to January 7.

Of the new record, Botti says “I turned 60 in 2022, at a time that seemed like a restart for so many things in the world. I wanted to strip away all the orchestral arrangements and focus more on my playing, the playing of my band, and these jazz classics that we always love playing on stage.”
