David Benoit was born in California, and grew up in Los Angeles. He was bitten by the jazz bug after watching a Charlie Brown special on TV and listening to the music of Vince Guaraldi in 1965. “When I heard that jazz piano trio, that was the defining moment when I decided that I wanted to play like Vince Guaraldi”, says the pianist, composer and arranger. Aged thirteen, he began studying piano and later he also studied music theory. composition, orchestration and film scoring with several designated masters. Since then, he’s worked with an impressive potpourri of musicians including the Rippingtons, Dave Koz, Faith Hill, David Sanborn, CeCe Winans and Brian McKnight. His first album was released in 1977, followed by many other chart toppers. Overall, David has received three Grammy nominations and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Smooth Jazz Awards in 2010. With his most recent CD he wanted to show other dimensions of his artistry and the result is his first recording with a vocalist: featuring Jane Monheit, a Grammy-nominated chanteuse from New York.

Olá Smooth Jazz-Lovers all over the world,
The long wait is finally over – the secret of the “New” in the alliance of our festivals is out: 1st ALGARVE SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL 2016. With our third annual event, we take you to the southern end of Europe, directly to the Portuguese Atlantic coast – more specifically to the spectacular rock formations of the Algarve. At the end of September, we are going to open the gates of a small paradise for festival guests from all over the world: The exclusive 5-star hideaway Vila Vita Parc extends on a 22-hectare, subtropical park, which sits directly on the seaside cliffs.
The member of the “Leading Hotels of the World” is located in Armação de Pêra (Porches), about half an hour drive away from Faro International Airport, and has much to offer – among others 170 rooms, suites and villas, which are housed in various Moorish style buildings. In addition, it has nine restaurants – one of them has been awarded with two Michelin stars – seven bars, a café and an underground vaulted wine cellar, where Vila Vita Parc proffers amongst others its house wine. As well as for example the olive oil they serve in the hotel it is grown on the Vila-Vita-Estate “Herdade dos Grous”. As a part of our additional festival program we are going to visit that 730 hectare property, located about an hour away from the resort, in a day trip – wine tasting included, of course.
Other stations in our additional program are – beside the welcome dinner with artists and musicians – an excursion to Faro and a bus trip to Lagos and Sagres, where we will follow the footsteps of Portuguese explorers. Furthermore, we have put together a high-class and varied festival line-up again. Look forward with us and the Vila Vita Parc team to having a glorious time in a heavenly place full of frank hospitality. And be assured: To all those who are looking for more than additional program and concerts Vila Vita Parc offers a wide variety of options to pass their time, relax, to do sports etc. Anyone who wants to find out more, should take a close look at our website – anyone who wants to experience it first hand, should book a ticket.
