"One of the many things I love about Amazon.com is their fabulous recommendations and this CD is one of those and never did they go wrong with their endless suggestions. This CD in its entirety is simply mesmerizing with Chris Botti's smooth, elegant and evocative covers of "Indian Summer," "Back Into My Heart," "My Funny Valentine," the title track "A Thousand Kisses Deep" and my all-time favorite Bacharach/David composition "The Look Of Love" with vocals by Chantal Kreviazuk. These beautiful melodies are so intoxicating that you won't be satisfied with a single listen and it would make you want to listen over and over again.
Mr. Botti's playing is reminiscent of Chet Baker's cool, mellow and captivating style in his version of Rodgers and Hart's "My Funny Valentine." This young and gifted trumpet player is also a very talented composer and he co-wrote five of the eleven tracks in this CD, most notably "Back Into My Heart" and "Ever Since We Met."
This is my first Chris Botti CD, which was #3 on the Top Contemporary Jazz Chart in 2003, and definitely will not be the last.
WHAT A SENSUAL AND MOVING SOUND

I had to actually stop what I was doing and just absorb every sound that was coming out of my cd player.
Chris Botti has done it again. I have yet to be disappointed with anything he has every put out and I hope I never have that sensation.
First Chris gives off some deliciously warm vibes with Indian Summer. Then he oozes sexuality with the tenderly kissed Do It In Luxury. Now Chris chimes in with his version of the Burt Bacharach classic The Look of Love. This version is sexier than Diana Krall's. Then he gently caresses the audio receptors with a sweet and loving A Thousand Kisses Deep. Now Chris (with Matthew Gerard and Bridge Benenate) puts pen to paper and writes the ever so gentle "dedication to the one I love" love song: Ever Since We Met. For a more neuvo jazzy feel, Chris swings it on Back Into My Heart. Time to slow things down just a bit with the lovely My Funny Valentine. The percussion infused The Last Three Minutes is a nice and slight change of pace. It reminds me of walking/strutting the streets while the mind goes elsewhere. If I Could requires the following: a hot cup of cappuccino, a fire in hearth and someone to cozy up to.
Chris is a seriously talented man with a great future ahead of him. A Thousand Kisses Deep is a grand look into the soul and heart of such a talented young man."
He did it again!

"Chris Botti has done it yet again. I didn't know if he could top his last CD "Night Sessions," but he did! The songs are typical of Botti's style. His CDs always have this mood that is a signature for him. A few of my favorites are "The Look of Love", "Indian Summer" and "Ever Since We Met". However, the entire CD is cool and I'm sure if you're a Chris Botti fan...you'll be impressed with his extreme talent. Chris Botti's music has a special touch that is easily identifiable and unique to him."
