Posts Tagged ‘Gabriel Mark Hasselbach’

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach plays many instruments – trumpet, flute, flugelhorn and trombone –, but trumpet remains his first choice. Born and raised in Colorado, he followed his muse to Vancouver in the 1970s. “I brought my bike, my trumpet and a stack of music books,” he said in an interview. “I never went to a conservatory, but I read the books, I practised a lot and I performed a lot. I think, this way, I kept my musical self, my uniqueness as a musician.” His career on the world stage started with the multiplatinum Powder Blues Band. After many national and international tours, he launched his solo career. Although he has also had notable straight ahead jazz successes, he prefers “the more rhythmically succinct domain of smooth jazz for the variety of color and texture that it provides”. Also as a soloist, he has toured many festivals (e.g. Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Fest), and has recorded or performed with artists such as Bob James, Little Richard, George Benson, John Denver, The O’Jays, Ben E King, John Lee Hooker, Paul Hardcastle or Michael Bublé (whose album ‘Dream’ was produced in Gabriel’s studio).

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, accessible 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 equipped 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 after show parties at the ‘Aldar Club’ in the main building will round off every evening.
