Josh Sinton & Ideal Bread go for broke making music history
Ideal Bread is preparing to record their most ambitious project yet: a 2-CD album entitled Beating the Teens. This will be a document of their year-long efforts to recompose and reimagine Steve Lacy's 3-CD box set Scratching the Seventies. To support this extensive and historically vital project, they have started a Kickstarter campaign.

Ideal Bread is Josh Sinton on baritone saxophone, Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Adam Hopkins on bass and Tomas Fujiwara on drums. They have been playing the music of Steve Lacy for 7 years and have recorded two albums of his unique and beautiful music: 2008's The Ideal Bread (KMB-Jazz) and 2010's Transmit (Cuneiform Records).
Except for a different instrumentation (Lacy's specialty was the soprano saxophone), Ideal Bread's performances of his music have traveled similar pathways to Lacy's groups. In early 2012, Sinton decided that if the group were to continue, it would have to do something different from its previous efforts. Taking on the herculean task of recomposing, reconstructing and rearranging all 26 compositions on Lacys's Scratching the Seventies, Sinton and Ideal Bread are now ready to record.
