Joey Alexander Trio

A three-time Grammy Award-nominated jazz pianist, Joey Alexander has a “sophisticated harmonic palette and a dynamic sensitivity” (The New York Times) that draws comparisons to masters like Bill Evans. Self-taught off his father’s Thelonious Monk records as a 6-year-old in Indonesia, his musical intuition and passion has led him down a remarkable path. He’s emerged as one of the jazz world’s most celebrated young artists, praised by Wynton Marsalis as “my hero.” Now, with two albums under his belt, the teen marvel who became the youngest jazz musician ever to be nominated for a Grammy leads his own trio and has a roster of collaborators to make any jazz artist envious. Following his inspired performance in 2016, Joey Alexander is back by popular demand, exhibiting his astonishing prowess as a composer, bandleader and artist looking toward a limitless future. www.artsandlectures.ucsb.edu
