About the Album

"Bell-ell-ell-ell-ells" is the second track from baritone saxophonist and bass clarinetist Josh Sinton's album, "making bones, taking draughts, bearing unstable millstones pridefully, idiotically, prosaically," out November 9, 2018 on Iluso Records. The album features Sinton and his Predicate Trio with cellist Chris Hoffman and drummer Tom Rainey. On the album, which is Sinton's tenth as a leader, the band sings and dances, howls and shimmies across a mix of Sinton compositions and free improvisations. The album title reflects Sinton's love of language and literature - and the examples of discursive titles by artists from John Cage to Fiona Apple. "Josh Sinton is equal parts intellectual and sensualist. His playing is built from the sound up, with the eye of an architect and the wit of a raconteur." - Grammy-nominated composer/bandleader Darcy James Argue
