Joshua Smith is a saxophonist/multi instrumentalist residing in the San Francisco Bay area. He has been playing for the past 20 years with a Who’s Who of creative music, starting in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio at the age of 16 as a member of an envelope-pushing avant garde jazz trio led by drummer Leland Scotty Davis. Joshua has lead a vivid performance life in the arena of forward thinking jazz through performing with players like Joe Lovano, Joe Maneri, Cuong Vu, (of The Pat Metheny Group), Chris Jonas, trumpet legend Nate Wooley, Trevor Dunn, Todd Sickafoose, Myra Melford, Scott Amendola, Ben Goldberg, and drummer Carmen Castaldi in addition to many other notable players… In addition Smith toured internationally and recorded with his well-loved trio, “birth” with bassist Jeremy Bleich and drummer Joe Tomino, which performed for many years before Smith departed for the West coast in 2004. Since relocating to the Bay Area, Joshua has performed with stalwart new music composer, Dan Plonsey playing in his famed Daniel Popsicle Ensemble and other projects of Dan’s… He’s also been a member of The Scott Amendola Quartet for the last five years, and performed with guitar luminary Nels Cline, at John Zorn’s NYC venue, The Stone.
