“Josh Maxey is at the forefront of the continuing evolution of jazz and in particular the jazz guitar. In an era where there are so many truly gifted musicians, Josh stands out because of the feeling of his music and playing. His music reflects a deeper purpose and a more mature evolvement than many of the “Young Lion’s” of jazz today who garner so much media coverage. His music and playing reflect his awareness that it is not mechanics, or complexity that define great art, but the intent and awareness of the artist and the ability to reach the heart of the listener in a transformative way.”
