Josh Kaye moved to Hawaii in 2008 after being part of the San Francisco jazz scene for twelve years. His 2004 debut recording entitled “The Joshua Kaye Quartet - Live!” included sidemen from the Cal Tjader band and was described as “kinetic Latin swing.” Since moving to Hawaii, he has been recording and performing locally with his trio as well as his R&B/jazz group Adagio. In 2009, Josh produced an album of original music by local songwriter Laura May Azpiazu called "Midnight Smooth" which featured Ginai on most of the tracks. In 2015, Josh released an album of his own original music performed on solo piano called “Introspection”. Currently, Josh is finishing an album of jazz standards that bring together many of Honolulu’s finest musicians as well as including notable mainland players such as New York trumpet player Eddie Henderson.
