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

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
