Wynton Marsalis calls Joey Alexander “my hero” and at age 12, this young Indonesian piano genius is fearless at the keyboard. Following the release of his debut album with a highly anticipated performance at the Newport Jazz Festival, Alexander won the admiration of audiences by doing anything but playing it safe. A special segment featured on “60 Minutes” inspired thousands throughout the nation to follow his career. The technique, feeling and authority that comes naturally to Alexander puts him in a prodigy class all his own. Joey Alexander performs a range of classic songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Billy Strayhorn with a deft touch, adventurous spirit and improvisatory verve.
