Joey Alexander Trio – Album Release Celebration!



Three-time GRAMMY-nominated pianist Joey Alexander follows his major label debut, ALARM (Verve Records), with three new singles “SALT”, “Under the Sun” and “Summer Rising” released worldwide on Verve. In just seven years after the release of five critically acclaimed studio albums (My Favorite Things, Countdown, Joey.Monk.Live!, Eclipse, WARNA), Alexander leads a career rarely seen in the jazz genre. He has garnered international acclaim from mainstream media, three Recording Academy nominations and praise from legendary jazz icons while becoming one of today’s most distinguished composers and bandleaders. .

Before his 18th birthday (summer 2021), Alexander has accumulated a lifetime of accolades and experiences that a jazz pianist could only dream of. For Alexander, however, he met every highlight of his career with great humility and lets his music speak for itself. He appeared on primetime television at the 58th GRAMMY Awards (2016); performed with Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding for the Obamas at the White House (International Jazz Day, 2016); sold-out for her Zankel Hall debut at Carnegie Hall (2019); sold out at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center; and was profiled by 60 minutes. A consistent line throughout his career remains an unwavering dedication to his craft as a melodic composer capturing the hearts of music fans everywhere.

Alexander’s debut single of 2021, the track titled “SALT” establishes a deep groove featuring the pianist on Fender Rhodes for the first time on a recording. He collaborates with his latest trio, including Daniel Winshall (electric bass and upright bass) and Tyson D. Jackson (drums) who made their stage debut together at the 2020 Detroit Jazz Festival. Special guest Jaleel Shaw (alto saxophone) appears on “SALT” and “Summer Rising” and Gilad Hekselman (electric guitar) performs on “SALT”.

The deadline for registration is April 17, 2022.
