The Joey Alexander Trio

with Jamison Ross

Born in Bali in 2003, pianist Joey Alexander was teaching himself Thelonious Monk’s “Well, You Needn’t” at the age of 6. Since then, this wunderkind has delighted audiences across the globe, earning praise from jazz greats from Herbie Hancock to Wynton Marsalis. Alexander’s playful musicality and keen sense of swing are showcased on his 2015 debut album, My Favorite Things, which garnered 2 Grammy Award nominations, making Alexander the youngest jazz artist ever nominated for a Grammy. Don’t miss the chance to see this rising star!

  • The multi-talented Jamison Ross opens the show. Ross won the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jr. international Jazz Competition in 2012.
  • Alexander’s performances on the 58th Annual Grammy Awards broadcast received a standing ovation from the star-studded audience.
  • His sophomore album Countdown (released in September 2016) showcases Alexander’s remarkable development as a contemporary jazz bandleader and promise as a composer.
