From the Bangkok Post:

One composer who found a very receptive ear among pop musicians and listeners was Luciano Berio. When his Sinfonia, performed by the Swingle Singers vocal ensemble and the New York Philharmonic, was premiered in 1968 under the composer’s baton it caused a sensation. A short time afterward CBS (now Sony) issued the piece on LP, and soon it was stacked up in many record shops together with the pop discs.

Josh Sinton Interview

From 5049 Records:

Josh Sinton is a heavy dude with heavy chops and a heavy heart to match. For this talk Josh and I skip the formalities and get right into it, leaving no personal details out as we discuss his personal history, frustration, depression, disappointment, creativity, life, love and music. This is a good one and I hope that you all enjoy it.
