This show represented a master musician showcasing a half-dozen musical genres with support from five insanely talented guest musicians. Chris' rhythm section has been consistent for several years and is great on its own. The guest artists included Caroline Campbell on violin, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on sax who played both pure and dirty, incredible in combination with Chris. Sy Smith also performed vocals with a Frank Sinatra standard and owned the audience. Jonathan Johnson sang opera, amazing, and it was topped off by Veronica Swift on vocals and Chris' trumpet. Never seen an instrument handoff like that mid-song, but they did it and Veronica was great. The entire 10-member ensemble crescendoed the show with Earth Wind and Fire's Shining Star. Of all the guests however, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown and Veronica Swift blew us away the most. They both have bright futures and it's a testament to Chris who brought young future greats on stage with him. His commentary about being mentored by Doc Severinsen fit the guest artists' inclusion perfectly. I haven't seen such a range of material in many years, with dynamics and set flow superb. The week-long residency at SFJazz looked a little like a tune-up for Chris' upcoming tour. Even though they were tweaking some of the arrangements on the fly, it was a powerhouse show overall. One negative: the mix. Chris had to ask numerous times for the monitor mix to lift his trumpet. In the course, the front-of-house mix left piano and guitars too low. Not the end of the world, but I found myself straining to hear their parts - and Leonardo Amuedo (guitar) and Holger Marjamaa (piano) are noteworthy talents on their own. Bottom line: If you haven't seen Chris Botti in concert, you owe it to yourself to catch him on tour this winter and spring. It took my view of his musicianship and musical leadership to a whole new level.
