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.
