Chris Botti Planning New CD

Chris Botti is hot. He's one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful" people, toured with Sting and has a smash CD called A Thousand Kisses Deep. So it's no surprise that he's entering the recording studio soon to take advantage of his popularity.

The new album, called When I Fall in Love, will feature some orchestration. The title song is a Edward Heyman and Victor Young composition that has been covered by numerous jazz and pop artists and was popularized by Nat King Cole.

Botti gained worldwide exposure touring with Sting, appearing in People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful” issue and having a No. 1 song, "Indian Summer." He also will debut Let's Chill With Chris Botti on radio stations this summer.

When I Fall in Love is expected to be released in October.
