Manuel Luque Regodón (Madrid, May 15, 2000) is a double bass player, currently living in Barcelona.
A young musician eager to learn, gain experience and make music, without limits or barriers, but always looking to see and live more. He grew up in a small town in the southeast of Madrid (Nuevo Baztán), where he began to play the guitar. He traveled to the USA (Rochester, NY) in 2016, where he discovered jazz music, playing in different local formations. He studied his jazz double bass bachelor at
the Conservatorium Maastricht (Netherlands), and a Master’s in Jazz performance at ESMUC (Barcelona) a city with a vibrant and varied music scene.

An active and involved musician, he has been part of various formations as a sideman and leader, which have led him to form part of various stages, festivals, and competitions, both on the peninsula and in Europe. Because of his stay in Maastricht, he has been greatly influenced by modern jazz, hard-bop,  avant-garde and nordic jazz, but he is also looking for a voice in his roots, in traditional music, flamenco and Latin music, a combination that he explores as a performer and as a composer.
These influences are present in his first album as a leader with ML Quartet, “Cicatrices” (Temps Records, 2024), in which he explores original compositions inspired by several moments of his life.
