    I took my son to hear Chris Botti in Toronto last night. What a phenomenal player and his band was equally as good. After the show they all made themselves available to sign autographs. It made Landon's night when he actually had a 45 second conversation with Botti who proved to be very personable and encouraging.

    If you ever get the opportunity to hear him perform don't miss it.

    Certainly is John - although probably not widely known in Brass Band circles . A fine musician - 'Night Session''s' is still one of my favourite 'mood' listens.

    Talking of 'mood' listens - I just played the introduction (3.5 mins) to a track called Octavarium by Dream Theatre... now, Dream Theatre are a progressive/symphonic rock band, and the start of this track isn't what I expected to hear. Lovely soothing dreamscape chords and gibson les paul guitar type effect with super reverb and delay... very dreamy.

    Anyone know the track?

    EDIT & PS: I just remembered where I had heard similar chords before... and it's very similar to the intro track on the "Wish You Were Here" album by Pink Floyd. Fmin - Fmin9 - C#min et al...;)

    I bought the "Night Sessions" CD a few months ago - it's great!It's very relaxing and some beautiful trumpet playing.

    I'm very partial to Chris Botti. I first heard him when he did some trumpet stuff for The Blue Nile about 15 years ago, then the very commercial When I Fall In Love came out (fab arrangement of the theme from Cinema Paradiso).
    A Thousand Kisses Deep is my fave though. (both of those CDs are commercial but listenable):clap:
