Eric studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass with the legendary saxophone professor, Joe Viola. By the time he left Berklee, Eric had achieved the highest proficiency rating given by the school. In 1995, Eric was awarded the Berklee Distinguished Alumnus Award for outstanding achievements in contemporary music. His professional career started in 1980 with famed trumpeter Al Hirt. After returning to Los Angeles Eric became a member of the Chick Corea Elektric Band. He recorded 6 CD’s with them and won 2 Grammy Awards. Eric went on to perform with artists such as Elton John, Barbara Streisand, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Dionne Warwick, Lee Ritenour, George Duke, David Benoit, Patti Austin, David Lee Roth and many others. Overall, the saxplayer has since gone on to perform in over 75 different countries, recorded 15 solo CD’s and has played on hundreds of records, films and tv shows. Eight of the songs he has recorded have made it to the top 10 of the National Contemporary Jazz Radio Charts and three have made it to #1. Eric was voted as being one of the year’s “Favorite Alto Sax Players” in Jazziz Magazine’s Reader’s Poll along with David Sanborn and Phil Woods.

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. Hotel package sale starts on the 1st of April.
