10 - 8:30 PM
Joey Alexander Trio
Born in Bali on 25th June 2003, Joey Alexander discovered jazz thanks to his father, who introduced him to the classics of the genre. At the age of six, he began learning the piano by himself with the small electronic keyboard he was given by his father. He was eight years old when UNESCO invited him to play solo in front of an enthusiastic Herbie Hancock. Joey later confided to him: "You told me that you believed in me, and from that day on, I decided to devote my childhood to jazz." An invitation from Wynton Marsalis led to his first appearance in the United States, on the stage of the "Jazz at Lincoln Center".
A touch of a thousand nuances, a perfect rhythmic mastery, a beautiful elegance in the compositions, and an ideal gift for improvisation...
Joey Alexander takes on standards with a refreshing approach, fusing them with his own compositions, revealing the heart and soul, sensitive and sincere, of his personality as a musician. At only 17, he has just released his 5th album, Warna, on the prestigious Verve label. It follows four albums released by Motema Music, which earned him three Grammy Award® nominations, as well as honours from Downbeat and JazzTimes magazines.
