Sergey Manukyan


Sergey Manukyan
(сергей Манукян)








[Português] Sergey Manukyan (ou Manoukyan) é um músico muito conhecido pelas latitudes dos czares mas infelizmente pouco difundido pelas bandas do hemisfério sul. Natural de Gronzy, Chechênia, vive a vários anos em Moscou onde desenvolve sua carreira de sucesso. Dedica-se principalmente ao jazz e a música popular, apesar dos poucos discos lançados, já contribuiu com vários nomes importantes do cenário musical internacional como Richard Elliot, Frank Zappa, Cindy Louper, Michael Bolton, Earth Wind & Fire, Carlos Santana, George Benson, Herby Hancock, Art Farmer, Dizzy Gillespie, Niels Pedersen, Sandra Brooker, Billy Copen e Quincy Jones. 

Manukyan é daqueles músicos incomuns, ótimo tecladista, cantor e baterista, com um grande poder de interpretação e expressão, na voz curiosamente tem preferência por cantar em inglês, mas produz atmosferas emocionantes com o canto e com as improvisações tipo vocalise. Serão postados cinco ótimos trabalhos de Sergey, os três primeiros da carreira solo com composições próprias ou temas populares, e os dois últimos atuando como baterista junto a um trio composto pelo excelente pianista clássico/jazz Valeri Grohovski e o baixista Anton Revniouk tocando diversos standards do jazz.
