Josh Deutsch Josh Deutsch

Trumpeter/Composer Josh Deutsch has established himself as a versatile and unique voice in New York’s music scene. Equally comfortable as a leader and sideman, Deutsch has performed throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and Asia.

Deutsch leads the band Pannonia, whose forthcoming album “Another Time, Another Place” will be released in 2013, and who can be heard performing regularly in and around New York. His duo project with guitarist Nico Soffiato has toured extensively in Italy and the U.S., and their debut CD “Time Gels” received high praise. Matthew Warnock of Guitar International calls Time Gels “an elegant, fresh take on the timeless (duo) tradition”, noting that “these two musicians perform as a cohesive unit, with improvisational vigor and mature musicianship.” Deutsch and Soffiato host the 2x3 series, which presents a diverse range of duos that perform and collaborate together.

Deutsch can be heard with Argentinian singer/composer Sofia Rei, the Australian soul/funk band The Hipstones, and Nathan Parker Smith’s Large Ensemble. Deutsch has also performed with Pedro Giraudo’s Expansions Big Band, Michael Bates’ Outside Sources, and the Duke Ellington Big Band directed by Victor Goines. Deutsch has appeared twice with his own projects on the Festival of New Trumpet Music, directed by Dave Douglas, as well as the Earshot Jazz Festival in Seattle and the Outpost Summer Music Festival in Albuquerque. Deutsch has performed at some of the top venues in the country, including the Stone and the Jazz Gallery in New York and Yoshi's in Oakland. Josh was a two-time winner of the Reno International Jazz Festival’s Outstanding College Trumpeter award, in 2008 and 2009, as well as Downbeat Magazine’s 2008 Student Music Awards College Jazz Soloist winner.
