look at THIS!

In what is perhaps the most exciting musical news I've gotten in years (YEARS, I tell you, I do not exaggerate when it comes to Chris Botti), Chris Botti (a.k.a. Ruth's Future Husband as he was known affectionately for many years on my previous blog) has a brand-new album coming out April 17th. That's next month people! I haven't been able to discover much about the album other than the cover (thanks to Amazon) and the tracklist (thanks AOL Music) --
  1. Concierto De Aranjuez
  2. Losing You
  3. Tango Suite
  4. You Are Not Alone
  5. Oblivion
  6. Per Te (For You)
  7. Setembro
  8. Sevdah
  9. Summertime
  10. Prelude No. 20 in C Minor
  11. Contigo En La Distancia
  12. Over the Rainbow
  13. What a Wonderful World
And for anyone reading this who may be unaware of the sheer awesomeness that is Chris Botti, here's a video from his Chris Botti in Boston concert special, performing "Emmanuel" with violinist Lucia Micarelli --
