Josh Sinton’s remarkable solo baritone saxophone album b. – out December 10, 2021 via Form is Possibility Recordings (FiP) – is already earning critical praise.
“An avant-bending treat…he dances, honks, explores, whimseys, romps, scratches, squeaks, meditates on these nine pieces that journey deep into low tones.” – Dan Ouellette, Jazz and Beyond Intel
“Varied and exciting…Sinton shows that the baritone saxophone can also be an instrument of delicate and beautiful sounds.” – Jan Granlie, Salt Peanuts
“One of the most striking baritone saxophonists … he marks the age of 50 with nine baritone statements that show his intellectual and emotional range from laconic to angry.” – Rigobert Dittmann, Bad Alchemy
The album took two days to record but thirty years to prepare for. In the world of creative music, solo saxophone records are fairly common. But it is their commonplace nature that gave Sinton pause. “The world has more than enough solo saxophone albums. Of all kinds. It took me a long time to discover what I could offer, what I could put in the public square that wasn’t there already.”
