Night Sessions is the fourth studio album by trumpet player Chris Botti. This is the first album to be released by Columbia Records on October 2, 2001.

I had been on the road for two straight years when I found myself with a window of only ten weeks to write and record this album. I felt energized by the challenge and asked my friend, Kipper, to co-write and produce. Renting a house in the Hollywood Hills where we could work and live, with ample room for other musicians and friends, we started composing material. We sensed freedom after dark - the phone was quieter and there were less distractions around the house as the light of the LA basin began to glow. We recorded only after the sun had set, often until it rose the next morning. These are the "Night Sessions." Enjoy. Chris Botti
