17 - 8:30 PM
Joey Alexander Trio
Born in Bali on 25th June 2003, Joey Alexander discovered jazz thanks to his father, who had him listening to the classics of the genre. At age six he began learning piano, teaching himself on the little electronic keyboard received from his father. He was eight years old when UNESCO invited him to perform a solo for a delighted Herbie Hancock, while this great artist was visiting Indonesia. Joey later told Herbie Hancock: "You told me you believed in me and from that day on, I decided to devote my childhood to jazz." An invitation from Wynton Marsalis was to be his first stage appearance in the United States at the "Jazz at Lincoln Center".
A touch with a thousand subtleties, a perfect mastery of rhythm, a charming elegance in his compositions and an irreproachable gift for improvisation…
Joey Alexander takes on the classics with an invigorating approach, fuses them with his own compositions, reveals the heart and soul, sensitive and sincere, of his personality as a musician… In 2020, he released his fifth album, "Warna", on the prestigious record label Verve. This work followed four albums released on Motema Music and won him three Grammy Award nominations, as well as the honours in the magazines "DownBeat" and "JazzTimes".
