Sinan Bakir (Solo Electric)
December 12, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST$10
Turkish jazz guitar virtuoso Sinan Bakir is noted by the music critics and audiences for his inspired and engaging live performances.
“Jazz critic Owen McNally describes guitarists music as “engaging, clear, uncluttered, accessible and resonate with a pleasant sense of layered mystery, seasoned with savory hints of the exotic.” while he underlines “Bakir’s tone just by itself makes him distinctive, in addition, of course, to his fluent playing and writing.”
Leading jazz website AllAboutJazz describes a performance by the Sinan Bakir Trio as ” Bakir’s inspired soloing feeds off of the energy coming from his trio mates, with lines possessing laser-like focus.” where jazz critic Rob Young states “burns slowly as it spreads evenly on this canvas as the trio swings gently through the passages in the spirit of jazz Turkish style”. As music writer Richard Kamins sums it up “Just let these sounds wash over you; good music can excite and soothe and this is good music.”
Concert will feature original music, standards as well as completely improvised pieces.
