Trumpeter Chris Botti, who has established himself as an immensely popular smooth jazz player with three No. 1 albums on the jazz charts, has an unusually rich, pure sound for a pop musician. (Think Miles Davis’ cool with Clifford Brown’s chops.) That sound will most certainly blend well with the strings of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. Botti’s band is nothing to sneeze at, either: Geoffrey Keezer, piano; Leonardo Amuedo, guitar; Billy Kilson, drums; Caroline Campbell, violin; and Lisa Fischer, vocals. The program will include music from Botti’s recent, Grammy-nominated album, “Impressions.” Stilian Kirov conducts. 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, at Benaroya Hall (S. Mark Taper Forum), 200 University St., Seattle; $41-$112 (206-215-4747 or www.seattlesymphony.org).
