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. As a teenager, he played pop, blues, rock and folk styles until he discovered Jazz. And that was through the only Jazz radio broadcasting program at the time: “Jazz porque Si”. Listening to Juan Claudio Cifuentes, conductor and newsreader of the program, he realized that this was what he wanted to do in life as a musician.
