good evening, andrea. hi, david. i was out there with the people, listening to the concert, and you are -- i don't know if you can say this on tv -- but, you are singing your ass off. [ laughter ] it is unbelievable! it sounds so great. i wanted to say that andrea and i have worked together a lot, and we have great fun together. and, as he mentioned, a couple of the composers -- morricone -- but there's a lot of italian -- popular italian songs that became big in america, and this one was from 1962. and it won a grammy for riz ortolani. and when i said to andrea that we should do this song, like, amore style, kind of sexy like andrea bocelli... he said... he said, "no, we must do it the way america knows it, the way new york knows it,
7:38 pm
because it was known as a swing song with frank sinatra." so, we're going to do it big band style. and we have a special treat. would you like to introduce our friend who's going to play trumpet with us? he's another big friend of ours, the greatest instrumentalist, chris botti. chris botti, everyone!

zahn: no stranger to public television himself, chris botti has thrilled more than a few huge crowds like this one, and has probably stolen a few hearts along the way. foster: nice one, chris. andrea, swinging like sinatra. amazing. incredible, there's nothing this man cannot do. and that leads us to this next song, which is another great italian pop song. do you want to talk about this song a little bit? i think that everyone can sing with us tonight.
