We were happy to welcome Canadian singer/songwriter Roxanna to the facility to record some music for her up and coming album Exotica. Also attending the session was Grammy Award winning record producer Mark Portman, and Grammy Awarding winning trumpeter/composer Chris Botti.
Portman is a celebrated producer that has worked with many of the most popular singers/musicians in the world including Celine Dion, Barbara Stresiand, Josh Groban, Christina Aguilera, Quincy Jones, Luis Miguel, and Carole King. He has received several awards for his work, including many Grammys, Top Billboard Charts, and ACAP awards.
In 2013, Botti won the Grammy Award in the Best Pop Instrumental Album category. He was also nominated in 2008 for his album Italia, and received three nominations in 2010 for the live album Chris Botti In Boston.
Four of his albums have reached the No. 1 position on the Billboard jazz albums chart.
Coming to prominence with the 2001 recording of his Night Sessions CD, Botti has established a reputation as a versatile musician in both jazz and pop music for his ability to fuse both styles together
