Josh Sinton: Predicate Trio

Read "Predicate Trio" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un trio di recente costituzione con alla testa il sassofonista e clarinettista Josh Sinton, quarantasette anni, newyorchese, firma questo ragguardevole album, contrassegnato da un clima scuro e irregolare, ora più contemplativo, ora più viscerale e diretto. Può apparire quasi scontato far coincidere il primo “ambiente" espressivo con i brani in cui Sinton imbraccia il clarinetto basso ...

Josh Sinton's Predicate Trio: Making Bones, Taking Draughts, Bearing Unstable Millstones Pridefully, Idiotically, Prosaically

Read "Making Bones, Taking Draughts, Bearing Unstable Millstones Pridefully, Idiotically, Prosaically" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Josh Sinton is a member of the Brooklyn jazz community who has been making a name for himself with his baritone sax, playing in contexts like his Steve Lacy repertoire band, Ideal Bread. His free-wheeling Predicate Trio with cellist Christopher Hoffman and drummer Tom Rainey is a combustible unit that showcases his more improvisational side.

Anker / Thomas / Flaten / Solberg: His Flight's At Ten

Read "His Flight's At Ten" reviewed by John Sharpe

Perhaps the title refers to British pianist Pat Thomas' travel schedule. If so it will be a situation that he is all too familiar with, as strangely his reputation appears greater in Europe than at home, in spite of an extensive discography and collaborations with a who's who of contemporary experimental music.

His Flight's ...

Read "Making Bones, Taking Draughts, Bearing Unstable Millstones Pridefully, Idiotically, Prosaically" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Considerate isn't an adjective you generally apply to creative new jazz recordings these days. Vanguard musicians are accustomed to employing the shock and awe required to get attention and satisfy their constituents. Maybe that is why Making Bones, Taking Draughts, Bearing Unstable Millstones Pridefully, Idiotically, Prosaically is such a breath of fresh air. Josh Sinton's Predicate ...

Stray: Into Darkness

Read "Into Darkness" reviewed by John Sharpe

Two old masters and two younger pretenders unite to produce Into Darkness.

Joining them in a continuous 51-minute live performance from London's Iklektic in ...

Musicianer: Slow Learner

Read "Slow Learner" reviewed by John Sharpe

With Musicianer reedman Josh Sinton adroitly shows how to combine the abstract and the earthy. It helps that he has enlisted long time associates drummer Chad Taylor and bassist Jason Ajemian to realize the eleven compositions on the group's debut Slow Learner. Taylor, who first garnered international attention in the Chicago Underground Duo (etc) with cornetist ...
