One feature I like about iTunes is that I can see which songs I listen to most often. This year my top 20 is dominated by Chris Botti songs. I’d never heard of him until Slacker radio played Indian Summer on afternoon and I was hooked.
When I’ve returned from a stressful day at work or I need a break from the kids I turn to my Chris Botti playlist, kick back with my headphones and tune out the world.
His music has the ability to relax me without putting me to sleep. It’s complex enough that it takes a few listens to ease into while some tracks are immediately approachable. One of my favorite songs is called “Like I Do Now” and it’s one of the few with vocals. Most of his music is instrumental.
Have you listened to Chris Botti before? If so can you suggest similar musicians I might enjoy?
