Born in 1993, Josh was raised in the small town of Delmont, Pennsylvania, about half an hour east of Pittsburgh. At the age of eight, he began playing the saxophone after watching an episode of the television show Reading Rainbow where LeVar Burton interviewed jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman. He continued to study privately in the Pittsburgh area until 2011 when he moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to study jazz at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM). There he was exposed to the music of a much broader field of jazz musicians. A major point of demarcation came when he listened to John Coltrane’s 1964 album Crescent for the first time. Inspired by the lyricism and power of Coltrane’s playing on that record and others like it, Josh became deeply enamored by jazz of the 1960s.
Joining Josh will be Peter Gemus on bass and Tom Buckley on drums.
