  • Chris Botti, Bobby Mcferrin and Yellowjackets Bring a Night of Jazz to the Hollywood Bowl
  • Jul. 13, 2011
  • WEDNESDAY, JULY 13 AT 8PM

    WHAT:

    The Hollywood Bowl presents a night of cool standards and romantic instrumentals with Grammy-winning jazz/pop trumpeter Chris Botti and vocal virtuoso Bobby McFerrin in collaboration with electro-acoustic jazz band Yellowjackets, Wednesday, July 13 at 8p.m.

    Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD When I Fall In Love, Chris Botti has become the largest selling American instrumental artist. His success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music and his ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 Jazz Albums, as well as multiple Gold, Platinum & Grammy honors.

    Bobby McFerrin is an eternal seeker, always defying the music industry’s practical impulse to pigeonhole artists. His diversity and range are incomparable, drawing on all genres; demonstrating matchless improvisational skills and an ability to create new vocabularies on the fly, he never fails to dazzle. Yellowjackets, the beloved eclectic band that keyboardist Russell Ferrante and bassist Jimmy Haslip built celebrates the ripe young, deep age of 30, a milestone commemorated with another powerful and heartfelt album, fittingly named Timeline.
