The inauguration of the temporary exhibition “Manuel Guerreiro, O Homem do Jazz” is scheduled for 5 pm on May 20, which will be on display at the Portimão Museum until September 3 next. The basis of this exhibition is Manuel Guerreiro’s (1932-2005) love for music and passion for jazz, his relevant and creative musical career and the recognition of an intense artistic activity, among his peers and throughout the world. In addition to highlighting Manuel Guerreiro’s strong desire to share and encourage a taste for music in the jazz clubs he created (“O Caldeirão”/Ferragudo and “Manoel’s Jazz Club”/Monte Carvoeiro), the exhibition is a well-deserved tribute and a special tribute to his inspiring and dynamic life.

On show will be, for example, a replica of the stage, as well as tables and chairs from “Manoel’s Jazz Club”, in Monte Carvoeiro, the second and last of the jazz clubs founded by the musician.
