Josh Lawrence

A New Jersey native, Josh Lawrence was born in 1982 in Princeton and raised in Browns Mills, a community just outside of Fort Dix in the Pine Barrens. At age 10 he picked up the trumpet but his formal training didn’t begin until his family moved back to Princeton and he enrolled in the public high school. There he studied with Dr. Anthony Biancosino, a celebrated educator whose Studio Band dominated national band competitions throughout the 80s and 90s. Biancosino’s music program would later be immortalized in fellow alumnus Damien Chazelle’s film Whiplash. In 2000 Lawrence won a scholarship to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia

Josh Lawrence: Triptych

Read "Triptych" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Triptych succeeds on the connection between Josh Lawrence's writing and a coterie of players with whom he has been associated for several years. A brilliant, enterprising band comprised of the leader's trumpet, pianist Zaccai Curtis, his brother, bassist Luques Curtis, alto saxophonist Caleb Curtis (no relation), and drummer Anwar Marshall readily embrace the contours of Lawence's ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
