Trumpeter Chris Botti gets the kind of tone on his horn that snuggles up to your ear. Round and warm, shapely and oh-so-tart, it's a sound that practically whispers sweet nothings. Botti also knows exactly what type of material his trumpeting will fit to a tee. Be it funky -- "Irresistible Bliss" -- mellow -- "The Look" -- or poignant -- "Where I'm Calling From" -- he always finds a just-right groove and appropriate mood to showcase his hornwork. The lush arrangements set off his lithe blowing like a diamond in velvet. Botti does get help from his friends: There's the contemporary update on the Frank Sinatra standard "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," enhanced by a gorgeous vocal assist from Sting. Mellow musicianship at its best, this is the perfect album to listen to when you feel like slowing the world down.
