Bassist and bandleader Josh Ginsburg is a regular fixture on the world's concert stages and jazz clubs. His music has been described as “vigorously fresh” (Irish Times) and “reveal(ing) itself in gradually unfolding layers” (JazzTimes); his most recent album as a leader, "Zembla Variations”, was chosen as an Album of the Year by the New York City Jazz Record.
Called "a player to watch" by JazzTimes, Green seized the attention of the jazz community with his second-place finish in the 2008 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition.
Both are Baltimore natives.
