Primary Instrument: Sax, alto
Josh Jefferson is a collage artist and a alto saxophone and bass clarinet player whose music can not be easily confined to such limiting descriptions as noise, free jazz, improv, etc. He plays locally in the groups Skinny Vinny, Duck That, Hospice for the 300 and Grizzlier and has developed a highly idiosyncratic approach to his instruments and a sharp edged approach to what we once knew as music.
The duo of Skinny Vinny has been making music and playing together since 2002. Inspired by speed chess, fast art, and all things Duchamp, Josh Jefferson and Andrew Eisenberg work together to define, refine and otherwise extend their understanding of music. Andrew Eisenberg plays percussion on an assortment of modified drum parts that he has reduced and eroded thru a process of playing and breaking them.
