Welcome

For me, music is transformative. There is a beauty just beyond the audible pitches and writable rhythms which speak to the many peaks and valleys of the human experience. In sound, I find a flow of meaning, love and purpose. I am drawn to improvisation and find it to be the closest expression to the creative source itself. 

Starting in spring of 2011 we set out to make a series of 6 albums in 12 months, and are up to ten albums and counting. The series has been downloaded over 30 thousand times, critically reviewed and played on FM jazz stations. The series includes about 40 original compositions and every album has different musicians and instrumentation. The music was recorded with some of the best musicians in NYC and Denver, CO. You'll find music, live video hosted by youtube only on this site, info about in person guitar lessons as well as video lessons, pics, blog, and lots of free pizza. Ok, no free pizza. Sorry about that.

Directly below is my UStream player. When I am performing live, just click to watch and listen along. You can also see the latest show play atuomatcially between performances. I stream every live show, sit back and listen from your couch!

About the Music 

“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...and the ability to reach the heart of the listener in a transformative way.”

Rodney Jones

Professor of Jazz Guitar Studies – Juilliard School of Music
Professor of Jazz Guitar Studies – Manhattan School of Music


"About that project… with the goal of recording six albums in a twelve month span, Maxey has offered up a series of remarkable sets, distinguishable from one another, yet clearly springing from the same creative source.  Differentiation, yet maintaining cohesion.

Modern jazz that’s clearly beholden to the blues, Maxey has carved out a nice little corner of the music world with his identifiable sound."

"Sophisticated yet demure...even sublime at times, Maxey has embodied the culture of his experiences into a captivating collection that reinvents the wheel, over and over again. This is one collection of beauty & art through jazz that will not disappoint. Even the most critical of ears will find that this is a must have."

  • We have seen some great music in LA! Saw @kamasiwashington at Grand Performances on Saturday. This was from sound check. Saw Thundercat walk in. A few minutes later he plugged in and played the baddest stuff.

  • We have some fun in this jazz guitar group on FB. If you like that sort of thing, I can add you. It's private now. We do a monthly video of a collection of micro lessons. The first video is 11 1:30 videos of concise ideas for playing over minor chords. @mitchhol did I add you to that group? Are we friends on FB?
