Josh Sinton was a composer before he was a performer. But his compositional work is little known, given that his most well-known outfit, Ideal Bread, exclusively performed the music of his teacher Steve Lacy. With musicianer, Sinton’s song-writing comes to the fore. Originating in 2015, the musicianer songbook is equally informed by the work of Nina Simone and Bob Dylan, as well as Ornette Coleman and Lacy. Sinton’s material ranges in subject matter, from a sad rage over civil rights injustice (Evening of Mourning) to commuting (pediments) to personal nihilism (devoid of Form, Devoid of meaning). Sinton asked his good friends, bassist Jason Ajemian, and drummer Chad Taylor, to join him on this expedition, knowing they would bring the perfect balance of precision and abandon his songs demanded, as well as asking scribe Greg Tate (Burnt Sugar Arkestra, Flyboy in the Buttermilk) to lend a hand by writing the liner notes. musicianer has just released its debut album “slow learner” on Iluso Records and they’re playing Neptunes in celebration!
“Josh Sinton’s Pine Barren is full of wit and irony, not to mention an impressive amount of straight-up tune-smithing…an ambitious but richly listenable and entertaining album.”
