Musician

Carles Benavent

Born:

The product of a musical crossroads, a border, a meeting place between very different cultures, but dominated by jazz and flamenco, the career of Carles Benavent began in a watershed year for Europe, 1968, in the popular and endearing Barcelonan neighborhood of Poble Sec when, at the tender age of 13, he formed his first group, Crack, which in 1970 became Máquina!. From an explosive clash to the perfectly-oiled machinery of teamwork. Five years later, together with Joan Albert Amargós, he founded Música Urbana, Spain's flagship of jazz-fusion.

Starting in the late 70’s, appearing in various groupings throughout the country, his name began to figure alongside those of the most distinguished musicians on the Spanish jazz scene, such as Kitflus Tito Duarte and Max Sunyer, with whom he formed a trio filled out by Salvador Niebla.

From Le's album Bakida (ACT, 2000), he is joined by bass titans Carles Benavent on electric ...
