He also is a regular with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Terell Stafford’s Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia and the Sun Ra Arkestra. In addition, he directs his own band that focuses on the music of the swing era, Josh Lee and the Extended Family.

Born in Philadelphia, Joshua was awarded Temple University’s 30 under 30 in 2020 for work with his non profit organization, Jazz Lives Philadelphia. He is faculty at Temple University’s Boyer College of music.
