Woodwindist/Composer Josh Sinton Embarks On 10-City Tour This December

Woodwindist, composer and creative musician Josh Sinton caps off an extraordinarily productive and busy year with a 10-city tour, Thursday, December 1 - Sunday, December 18. Performances include stops in New York City; Baltimore, MD; Cary, NC; Richmond, VA; Knoxville, TN; Athens, GA; Pittsburgh, PA; Bloomington, IN; Kansas City, MO; and Chicago, IL.

Sinton's three highly acclaimed 2022 albums on Form Is Possibility Recordings (FiP) include Adumbrations (June 3) which features Sinton with longtime friends, pianist Jed Wilson and drummer Tony Falco. Though they've known each other since their student days at New England Conservatory, their album of free, lyrical, inspired music marks their trio debut. Mike Shanley of JazzTimes wrote, "Throughout six untitled tracks, [Sinton, Wilson and Falco] engage in deep conversations, from the Coltrane-esque rubato of the opener through some exploratory alto-flute pieces to waves of bass clarinet and piano on a sea of drum fills."

On August 12 Sinton released Steve Lacy's Book of Practitioners Vol. 1 "H," a deeply personal and exacting rendition of six Lacy etudes. Writing in a 4-star review in DownBeat, Ed Enright said, "This album is a heavy package that will appeal to serious players, deep listeners and fans of art created in absolute earnest."

Josh Sinton's Predicate Quartet with trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson, cellist Christopher Hoffman and drummer Tom Rainey released 4 freedoms on October 28. Befitting the momentum Sinton has generated this year, 4 freedoms is a dynamically charged, compositionally rich record which marks a new high point in his work.

Called "varied and exciting," as well as "one of the most striking baritone saxophonists," Josh Sinton has been heard with some of the leading voices of Brooklyn's creative music scene since arriving in 2004. Whether with the bands of Anthony Braxton, Nate Wooley or Darcy James Argue or his own groups Ideal Bread or Predicate Trio, Sinton's unique soundings on baritone saxophone and bass clarinet have lent an air of urgency and immediacy to every musical situation he has participated in. He is proud to count Ingrid Laubrock, Jonathan Finlayson, Tom Rainey, Jeremiah Cymerman and Guillermo Gregorio among his colleagues and looks forward to making music with many other musicians. In 2020 he was named "Rising Star" in the baritone saxophone category of Down Beat's Critics' Poll and earned a place in the baritone saxophone category every year since 2014.
