Oregon-bred trumpeter Chris Botti is starting his 2023 in a stereotypically tropical state of mind. Before the 60-year-old heads across the pond for a limited run of shows in Taiwan and Tokyo, he spends a full week covering most corners of Florida including Ruth Eckerd Hall
. Next month, he plays over in Honolulu for a few days.
Botti hasn’t frequented recording studios in a hot minute, but his setlists include a few licks of classic rock, Great American Songbook selections, and even “Danny Boy.”
Tickets to see Chris Botti play Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Friday, Jan. 27 are still available.
