Editors’ Notes With its prestigious Symphony Hall locale and superstar guest list including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, vocalist/songwriter Josh Groban, and singer/actress Katherine McPhee, Live in Boston reflects Chris Botti’s immense success at the time of its recording in September 2008. Backed by The Boston Pops and conductor Keith Lockhart, the triumphant crossover trumpeter dazzles with his regular rhythm section. Former boss and longtime champion Sting sings two of his own songs (“Seven Days,” “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You”), while rock-pop singer/songwriter John Mayer surprises with a sweet vocal on Rodgers & Hart’s “Glad to Be Unhappy.” Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler charms the hometown audience with Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile,” and Botti closes the night with a dazzling version of "Time to Say Goodbye.”
