“A nimble guitarist and a scintillating composer.”

                                                        The New York Times- 2009

“Sahin’s guitar playing soars in a confluence of high art and earthiness. “  
                                                                     
                                                       Guitar Player Magazine- 2010

“Turkish-born/New York-based guitarist Timucin Sahin is one of those artists who defines the avant-garde genre."

                                                             Guitar International- 2010

"Very impressive, visceral yet also cerebral and feisty..”  
 
                                                              Downbeat Magazine- 2013

                                                             

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 Audiophile audition described his music as follows:
“There is a lot going on in Sahin's ample assortment of tones and experimentation and his approach to composition and performance necessitates active involvement. But to apply a one-time film student's simile, it is like delving into a David Lynch or Atom Egoyan movie: on subsequent tries understanding and insight start to occur. “
Timucin Sahin, born in Turkey, immigrated to Holland as a young man to study jazz guitar and classical composition in Hilversum and Amsterdam Conservatories. Then he continued his studies at the Manhattan School of Music.
