Internationally acclaimed jazz/R&B keyboardist and 2-time Soul Train Music Award winner Alex Bugnon will take the stage at the PlayStation Theater. Bugnon has been a prolific, energetic force on the contemporary music scene for more than two decades. A renowned musician/composer/bandleader, he hales from the picturesque town of Montreux, Switzerland – site of the world famous Jazz Festival. No doubt, the annual convergence in his hometown and in his own home, of some of music’s most illustrious names played a role in his decision to pursue a musical career, as did his early friendship with Herbie Hancock. The fact that his uncle was the legendary Donald Byrd only served to further his decision.

Olá Smooth Jazz-Lovers all over the world,

The wait is over! In our consecutive 4th year in Portugal, we proudly present the new home of the ALGARVE SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL: PINE CLIFFS – an award-winning Resort & Spa in Albufeira, which is one of the leading Luxury and Family Resorts in Europe. The exquisite hidden jewel enjoys a spectacular seafront location on the top of the Algarvian red cliffs, above the famous beach, Praia da Falésia – considered to be in the top3 most beautiful beaches of Portugal and Spain.

The 5-star resort, managed by Marriott International through its ‘The Luxury Collection’ brand, is traditionally styled with indigenous design, where Portuguese history is narrated through murals and hand painted tiles, skillfully complemented by native architecture. On 72 hectares, Pine Cliffs boasts exceptional leisure and sports facilities incl. the 1,100m² awarded Serenity Spa, a gym & health club, a Tennis Academy, a 9-hole cliff-top golf course and Golf Academy as well as swimming pools and water sports (seasonal). A selection of 11 restaurants and bars provide a prime dining experience – one of them on the beach, accessable via a walkway and panoramic elevator.

The Resort comes up with different options of hotels and properties: For our festival packages, we chose on the one hand the ‘Pine Cliffs Hotel’ and the ‘Pine Cliffs Ocean Suites’. They are both part of the Luxury Collection brand and are located in the main building complex, where the main festival action happens. And on the other hand, we chose in short walking distance the brand-new ‘Pine Cliffs Gardens’ (built in 2018) and the ‘Pine Cliffs Townhouses’. The latter are available with up to 3 separate bedrooms (each with its own bathroom), a living room and a full equiped kitchen – the most cost effective solution and perfect for being shared with friends.

The Resort also comes up with a fabulous place for the concerts: The ‘Tabu Garden Lounge‘ is an open-air venue right on top of the cliffs. Imagine, live-music in your ears, a cool drink in your hand… and from your seat, you are not just overlooking the stage, but also the Atlantic Ocean. Is there any better way to enjoy a first-class artist line-up??? And the aftershow parties at the ‘Aldar Club’ in the main building will round off every evening.

The early booking sale starts on February 23, 2019 in our online-shop: http://www.smoothjazzshop.eu
