This double-bill features two versatile New York reed players as leaders, each fronting a trio sans harmony instrument: baritone saxophonist & bass clarinetist Josh Sinton leads his Predicate Trio with cellist Chris Hoffman and drummer Tom Rainey, the band celebrating the release of its first album, making bones, taking draughts, bearing unstable millstones pridefully, idiotically, prosaically. About Josh, Grammy-nominated composer-bandleader Darcy James Argue says: “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.” The other half of the bill features alto/tenor saxophonist & bass clarinetist Avram Fefer, who leads a trio with bassist Sean Conly and drummer Michael Wimberly. All About Jazz has praised Avram for how “his coiled phrasing lends his propulsive excursions an infectious, groove-oriented focus.”
