“Joshua Jefferson is a alto saxophonist, and bass clarinetist. His deft reflexes and coordination make him a master of what could be called “protective mimicry,” if he were not so original. His playing may evoke meadows rife with wildlife, the long trill of a hermit thrush underscored by the bellow of bullfrogs—or, the roar of a crocodile splashing into the Everglades of his native Florida. A quick study, he has developed his remarkable technique in a short period of time, having picked up the sax in his early twenties, taking lessons from bhob rainey of Nmperign. He is also a very fine collagist, drawing inspiration, in both his visual and sonic art, from Marcel Duchamp. He is uncannily adaptable. As a musician he jumps in and out of projects, his own and others, assimilating their conceptual nature and vigorously sharpening it.” ~ Gordon Marshall, All About Jazz
