After a Master Class with Chris Botti and talking to people who know him well, he is a man of great integrity who found his niche. But maybe as a woman I document integrity not just what comes out of a person's horn but out of his mouth and how they treat their fellow man. He admitted he could never have a relationship or a family because of his schedule. Mr. Botti has never felt the need to publicly degrade women like Nicolas Payton. Even though I personally would never buy a Chris Botti CD, his comments about how sloppy prominent musicians were in studio sessions and with individuals told me he takes his craft and reaching people very seriously. And in light of Wynton's horrid He and She CD, and concerts w/ Willie Nelson and Eric Clapton, musical integrity has many shades. Also for the record Chris Botti operated and paid his band at a lost for several years.
