Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 9.9.10





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Grammy Award-winning jazz trumpeter Chris Botti’s atmospheric, genre-bending compositions have been compared to Kind of Blue era Miles Davis, which is about all the hep recommendation anyone needs. Botti’s albums are consistent jazz Billboard charters — three have hit the #1 position — and with a past that includes collaborations and performances with the likes of Sinatra, Sting, Joni Mitchell and Josh Groban, there’s no question the man knows his way around a song and a stage. So put on your best Chet Baker jacket, shake off those nightclub jitters with a Manhattan or two, and find yourself smooth and ready when Botti hits The Shedd Thursday, Sept. 16; www.theshedd.org, $35-$65
