    I wondered if Chris Botti had played this song with Andrea Bocelli but cannot find any reference to that.

    But I did find a few youtube clips of Chris playing other songs with Andrea, including this one:


    updated video link as previous one was stale/removed

    I noticed this was titled "In Tuscany". Just wondering if it was "Midnight in Tuscany". Would love to get Chris my manuscript of "Midnight in Tuscany". It conveys much of the feeling and style in this clip. I wrote it to be a Jazz Opera piece. The EBQ has been playing it now on nearly every gig. It has become an instantaneous crowd favorite. If anyone here on TM would like to hear our recording if "Midnight in Tuscany" send me a PM with your email address and I will send the mp3 of our studio recording.

    I took the time to listen carefully...actually the person doing the oboe intro does a nice job too...

    Well in my case I just recently started taking lessons with someone that studied under the same guy that helped teach Chris Botti, so only 1 or 2 degrees of separation. I can say that in 1 month of lessons, I have already noticed improvement in my tone quality! I feel like when working on tone quality that it can at times seem very elementary in what you do, but the importance is how you do it.

    Had to listen to that last note again (Bocelli/Botti). Impeccable control even to controlling the water to a great degree. Wonderful job by 2 GIFTED musicians

    Time to be honest here - Chris is only miming, I stand behind the flats on the side of the stage and do the actual playing ROFLROFLROFLROFL

    Although Chris plays extremely well, I've no pretense to play like he does ... I play like ME ... which may not be as well, but I enjoy it. Now my question to Chris is: Does he always enjoy playing like such?
