JOEY ALEXANDER

NEW RELEASE MY FAVORITE THINGS

A native of Bali, Joey Alexander taught himself to play piano by listening to classic jazz albums his father shared with him.

Due to the lack of jazz education where he lived, Alexander began attending jam sessions with senior musicians. From there, his musical intuition flourished, as did his love of playing jazz. In recognition of his talent, UNESCO invited Alexander to play solo piano in honor of his jazz idol Herbie Hancock, who provided early enthusiastic support to Alexander’s budding career.
