Carles Benavent is a highly acclaimed flamenco and jazz bassist. Benavent was born in the Poble Sec neighborhood in Barcelona. He started playing the bass when he was thirteen years old, attracted by blues and rock, Jimi Hendrix in particular. A totally self-taught jazz bassist, he founded the group, Mú-sica Urbana with which he recorded two albums. He came to create a new form of playing the electric bass Flamenco style, using the pick to create a special type of alzapú-a. His preferred instrument is the fretless bass, which was pretty uncommon at the time, so he can be considered one of the fretless bass pioneers in Flamenco music. One of the hallmark pieces that first showcased his unique playing was his duet with Paco de Lucia on Pacos album Solo Quiero Caminar, called Monasterio De Sal. On the same album, his use of harmonics and his groove playing on the track Chanela are reminiscent of the great jazz bassist Jaco Pastorius.
