Josh Sinton: Predicate Trio

Alberto Bazzurro By

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 e il secondo con quelli al sax baritono, ma le cose stanno spesso proprio in questi termini.

Le nostre preferenze, in un album comunque di livello qualitativo costante, vanno al primo filone, cioè a brani come l'iniziale "Mersible" e poi "A Dance," "Unreliable Mirrors," quanto mai concentrato, e ancora "Plumbum," dove pure Sinton si produce al baritono, in un interfacciarsi astratto e vaporoso in particolare con l'archettato di Christopher Hoffman. Ovunque prezioso e mai prevaricante il gioco percussivo di Tom Rainey.

Track Listing: Mersible; Bell-ell-ell-ell-ells; Taiga; A Dance; Blockblockblock; Unreliable Mirrors; Propulse; Idonal; Plumbum.

Personnel: Josh Sinton: baritone saxophone, bass clarinet; Christopher Hoffman: cello; Tom Rainey: drums.

Title: Predicate Trio | Year Released: 2018 | Record Label: Iluso Records
