I have recorded for Stephen Sondheim and played with Esperanza Spalding, Meghan Trainor, dozens of Broadway vocalists, and countless other artists. Through my experiences I have mastered dozens of woodwinds and musical genres.
I am a professional multi-woodwind instrumentalist living in New York. I play just about every woodwind except for bassoon (and if you need bassoon I can subcontract for you!), including woodwinds from around the world. I've been in and around New York and learned the vocabulary of jazz, classical, rock, pop, Latin and other genres. I am equally comfortable being an orchestral woodwind section as I am playing a screaming rock sax solo.
I'm also able to help create parts if you don't already have one (riffing over a tune, woodwind choir arrangements, writing out a whole sax soli, creating background parts, etc.). Check out my multitrack videos on YouTube (http://youtube.com/joshplotner/) for some samples of what I've written based off of existing songs.

Reviews of Josh Plotner
Josh did a great Job w my song Off its Axis. His playing is smooth, and he gets great sounds. He listened to my ideas and executed them nicely. Highly recommend!
Josh, simply put, is one of the most versatile musicians I have had the chance to work with. Not only is he great at playing a crazy amount of wind instruments, but he is also profoundly gifted at interpreting and understanding a wide range of musical styles and genres, as evidenced in his work with my Venezuelan music project, LEDensemble.
I had the chance to work with Josh on the AKUNA ART project. It sounds great. He feels the direction to take. Very good vibes. It also works quickly and is always important in a production. I look forward to working with Josh. Awesome experience :)
I have worked closely with Josh on various projects, most recently being my Album launch concert in New York City. Working with Josh is always an effortless experience for he brings with him a plethora of knowledge and expertise. His musical taste is impeccable and I look forward to working with him in the future. Definitely most highly recommended
I have used Josh on 2 albums I have composed, and will continue to use him in the future wherever possible. I have found him not only to be a singularly talented and versatile session player, but also a warm and friendly person. I highly recommend him to anyone. - Graham Foote www.grahammichaelfoote.com
Josh added flute to a song on my upcoming EP. He used one flute and added 4 vocal harmonies and wrote out a melody so tight we started calling it "the flute song." He always performs at the highest most professional level. I look forward to continuing to work with him. - Badia Farha www.BadiaFarha.com
Josh worked on my music project that blends contemporary genres with traditional Indian pieces. He added wonderful melodies and textures using multiple wind instruments, which was exactly what I was looking for. He was extremely professional and creative. It was a pleasure to work with Josh! - Samyukta R; Singer https://soundcloud.com/srnathan
