I'm told trumpeter Chris Botti is a pretty big deal, and not just because he dated Katie Couric, though that seems qualification enough to me. He teamed up with Steven Tyler for a version of this classic, which may surprise Tyler fans and non-fans alike.
They played it live at Symphony Hall a bit ago, I'm told, with Tyler's dad in attendance and the recipient of the dedication.
I hereby dedicate it to everyone that is fed up with this year's winter weather. My calendar says Spring beings in nine days. Keep hope alive and try to smile, for Pete's sake!
