Blue Note Jazz Club, one of the world’s most iconic jazz and blues venues based in Greenwich Village, has announced world renowned trumpeter Chris Botti’s milestone 10th Annual Holiday Residency. The three-week engagement at the club will run Monday, December 15, 2014 through Sunday, January 4, 2015, with two shows each evening (including Christmas Eve and New Years Eve performances).
Botti, described by The Wall Street Journal as “a December institution in the Big Apple,” has called the Blue Note his home every December since 2005. Over the years the residency has featured special impromptu musical guests, such as Sting and John Mayer (2011). Celebrities from all walks of the entertainment business have attended Botti’s Blue Note performances, ranging from Mary J Blige to Paul Haggis.
“Coming to the Blue Note for as many years as I’ve been is like coming home,” says Botti. “The best city, the best club, the greatest people.”
Reflecting on Botti’s ten-year run, Blue Note Entertainment Group President Steven Bensusan says, “Chris’ annual holiday residency has become one of the highlights of our venue’s story, with a prime focus on loyalty. This is an engagement that fans regularly look forward to and support each year. It’s also a testament to our relationship and history with Chris. He is truly part of the Blue Note family. We look forward to celebrating ten great years this December.”
