Event Date:

Rising jazz guitarist/composer Sinan Bakir made a name for himself in today's music scene with his unique, creative and exciting approach on the guitar.

Bakir is a Turkish-born guitarist, striving for a fresh and clean sound and has a highly energetic playing style. He is hailed not only as a virtuoso player, but also a masterful composer by his peers. Bakir’s fresh sounding tunes are an amalgam of rock & jazz stylings and driven by strong melodies deriving from the rich Turkish tradition combined with modern jazz harmonies.

His all original debut album “On My Way”(2009) with Thomson Kneeland and Mark Ferber received great reviews from many respected jazz publications and music critics all around the world. While the album is having significant radio and TV airplay, Bakir is keeping busy playing jazz festivals and regular gigs at NY and CT clubs.
