An Englishman who accentuates his music with charm and playfulness. The result: Smooth Jazz with a spiritedness which many others in this genre lack. Born in Luton in 1954, White devoted himself to music already as a child. He learned to play several instruments, including the clarinet, trombone, violin and piano. And of course, like so many youngsters growing up during the heyday of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, he gravitated to the guitar. After his first electric guitar had burnt in a fire, however, he had to play an acoustic guitar. He made the best of it: White discovered his love for acoustic music. At 20, he was invited to join Al Stewart’s band for a tour of England, Scotland, and the U.S. in 1975. This was the beginning of a 20 year association. He worked with Stewart as a pianist at first, and later also as a guitarist, composer and co-producer. In 1979 both moved to Los Angeles, formed the band ‘Shot in the Dark’ and a record label called Lobster Music. In 1990 White published his first solo CD ‘Reveillez-Vous’. The album soon became a favourite among contemporary jazz radio stations. 13 successful albums later, White released his last solo recording ‘Smile’ (2014).

“The smoothest way to end an old and start a new year” – this is the theme for the SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL AUGSBURG 2015: It’s the first time that the organizer smooth entertainment presents the stars of the international Smooth-Jazz-Scene around the turn of the year. As in the previous years, the three-days-festival is going to take place at the famous Park Theatre in Augsburg – the perfect surrounding for the big names performing on stage. The most extravagant of them is likely to be the guitarist and vocalist Nick Colionne who will also be hosting the “New Year’s Allstar Jam-Session”, starting on New Year’s Eve after midnight. There is hardly a great Smooth Jazz Festival or a Smooth Jazz Cruise in the US, Colionne has not joined and performed at, yet. The flamboyant personality, who has been elected “Performer of the Year” several times, is not only an excellent musician, but also a gifted showman.

With guitarist Peter White, keyboardist Jeff Lorber and saxophonist Everette Harp, the line-up comprises even more great names, which together look back on several Grammy nominations, number-one hits and about 50 solo albums. And the programme continues with saxophonists Michael Lington and Jackiem Joyner, bassist Michael Manson and singer Selina Albright – they also provide best smooth jazz sound and great entertainment. All of this awaits guests in the nonchalant, relaxed and boisterous atmosphere of the Park Theatre, for which the Festival has been known for years now. And of course, also this year the legendary after-show parties are part of the program and finish off the three evenings enjoyably.

The festival’s partner location this year is again the “Dorint Hotel an der Kongresshalle”, which is connected via shuttle bus to the Park Theatre. The festival’s gala dinner, the “hangover breakfast” after New Year’s Eve and also the New Year’s Concert feat. Jackiem Joyner & Selina Albright are going to take place at the Dorint Hotel.
