TIMUÇİN ŞAHİN

 


Timucin Sahin has been recognized as one of today’s truly unique voices of contemporary jazz music by publications such as San Francisco Bay Guardian, AllaboutJazz, Jazzwise, Downbeat and Jazz-Times as well as by many others.
His unique sound on fretless electric guitar and his emotional content in his composing made him non-comparable and his music almost impossible to categorize.
Both his compositions and his playing on his double-neck guitar – his trademark – radiate an incomparable individualism.
His music is drawn from a wide body of knowledge and experience, often developed from his considerable skills as a guitarist. He employs improvisation but in ways hard to separate from the sound of his notated music.  His music is characterized by a delicacy of instrumental imagination and rhythmic structures, which have much flexibility though clearly pulse derived.
