Chris Botti preps new CD

Trumpeter Chris Botti spent just enough time away from main squeeze Katie Couric to cut To Love Again, the follow-up to 2004’s smash When I Fall In Love. (Dig those album titles. Note to Katie: You got your man wrapped around your finger, girl!)

Released on October 18, To Love Again features 13 tunes, including the single “Embraceable You,” the title track and “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?” Botti stacked the deck with popular singers, too, including Michael Bublé, Paul Buchanan, Paula Cole, Gladys Knight, Renee Olstead, Rosa Passos, Jill Scott, Sting and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. (From “Seasons of Wither” to contemporary jazz-nice job, Steve. Now please turn in your rock ‘n’ roll scarves.)
