After hosting the nationally syndicated radio show Chill With Chris Botti since September of 2004, trumpeter Chris Botti has decided to hand over hosting duties to saxophonist Mindi Abair. Mindi, who says she excited about her new job as she loves chill music and has always aspired to get into radio, will officially take over the first week of May.
Abair and Botti have already co-hosted a few shows together this month that were recorded from Botti�s room at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. Chill music, which developed on the beaches in Caf� del Mar on the Spanish island of Ibiza, draws its roots from smooth jazz, dance, electronica, pop, new age, trance and techno music. Today, the music is best-known through artists such as Praful Zero 7, Adani & Wolf, Tosca and Moby.
The new "Chill With Mindi Abair" radio show is a product of Rendezvous Entertainment, Broadcast Architecture and Crystal Media, the same group that syndicates The Dave Koz Radio Show.
