Manoel Cruz


Bassist, composer, arranger and producer. The development of an authorial work was natural to Manoel Cruz. The experience gained as sideman of several artists of the most varied styles of Brazilian music is translated into his instrumental compositions with a regional accent: from baião to samba, from maracatu to forró, combining technique with improvisation freedom provided by comtemporary Jazz. Such fusion resulted in the following CDs: Alcatéia (2002) and Under My Soul (2012) also on DVD recorded live at Humbouldt Theater - SP. Manoel Cruz presented himself in Concert Houses and Festivals all over the country. In 2013 he was invited to perform at the closing of the XIV Santo Domingo Jazz Festival in the Dominican Republic, being the first Brazilian Artist to participate in the festival in its 14 years of existence

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
