Chris Botti continues here pretty much where he left off from his First Wish
album, even though the opening track, "The Steps of Postiano", promises a composer more confident and mature than last time round. Playing with a vast array of top session musicians, the trumpeter also uses the Native American drum extensively, a simple ingredient which deepens his message considerably. The basic recipe for his tunes remains the same: first, a catchy intro that modulates into a light groove , then Botti comes in, dabbing the sound picture with his bluesy, crystal-clear lines. He always plays some beautiful trumpet, and on "Mr. Wah" his little outburst is a modest, tasteful reminder of what a classy player he is. But he always leaves us wanting more. This second solo album came after Botti had completed an extremely successful film score for the love-thriller-tragedy Caught
. Midnight Without You
features the track "Forgiven" from that movie, sung by Jonathan Brooke, far from the best track from the movie but is indisputably a "nice" ballad. Listeners who like the more serene, intense qualities of Botti's playing are advised to turn to the Caught
album which is highly recommended. --Yngvil V.G.
