Trumpeter Chris Botti's To Love Again: The Duets made its first appearance on the Billboard jazz chart this week at number one.

To Love Again includes standards such as "Embraceable You," "Lover Man," and "Here's That Rainy Day," and features duets with such pop and jazz stars as Sting, Michael Bubl_, Paula Cole, Gladys Knight, and Steven Tyler. It follows Botti's gold record When I Fall in Love, which is currently at number four in its 56th week on the chart.

Botti's CD displaced Bubl_'s It's Time, which dropped to number two after spending 35 of the last 36 weeks in the number-one spot.

Also new on the chart were vocalist Jane Monheit's Season at number nine; But Beautiful: The Best of Shirley Horn, released in the week of the singer and pianist's death, at number 17; and Jazz for the Holidays, a compilation from Martha Stewart Living magazine, at number 18.

Herbie Hancock's Possibilities returned to the top spot on the contemporary-jazz chart after being bumped last week by Jamie Cullum's Catching Tales, which dropped to number two. Two albums debuted on the chart: Kenny G's Greatest Holiday Classics at number seven and a compilation album supporting AIDS treatment from San Francisco's Smooth Jazz KKSF 103.7 FM at number 19.
