Marcos Pin

MARCOS PIN Jazz Guitarist and composer.

Marcos Pin, Galician guitarist and composer , is one of the names you hear again and again, when talking about Jazz in Spain. Heir to the hard bop tradition led by guitarists as Jimmy Raney or Tal Farlow to name a couple, Pin defends the beauty in his sound and flow of his solo lines but with an originality of ideas that fit contemporary times. A modern sound that comes directly as evolution of the great Jazz tradition.

Born october, 1974, Marcos started playing guitar at 8 years of age. Lugo, his hometown was not a “Jazz place” at all.

“... Pin is a born improviser. He loves his guitar and makes love along every piece generating free structures that allow him to play his broad ones without boring the audience not even an instant. “ Félix Amador-Gálvez. Jazz ese Ruido

“... Marcos Pin, beautiful sound and amazing sense of tempo... “ Victor Bobeche, Districto Jazz.

“Marcos Pin is a marvellous and magnificent Galician guitarist who throughout the years has been standing out and appearing as performer, composer and arranger.” Juan Carlos Abelenda, Jazz Recordings.

“...Pin's arrangements mix big band swing and bop influences with great success, resulting in an album which harks back to the middle of the twentieth century while sounding exciting, fresh and cool in the twenty-first.” Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz.
