Info zu Joey.Monk.Live!

Zur Feier des hundertsten Geburtstags von Thelonious Monk trat Joey Alexander im Juni 2017 im Appel Room von Jazz at Lincoln Center auf. Das daraus resultierende Live-Album Joey.Monk.Live! zeigt Joeys Trio mit dem Bassisten Scott Colley und dem Schlagzeuger Willie Jones III, wie sie Monks Musik auf fantasievolle und tief empfundene Weise erkunden. In Solo-, Duo- und Trio-Performances zollt Joey dem Pianisten und Komponisten Tribut, der ihn zum ersten Mal beeindruckt hat und der immer noch als Inspiration für ihn dient.

"Mit exquisiter funky Piano-Spielweise, in der zunächst Blues- und Gospel- Elemente angedeutet werden, um dann wie Treibgut in einen rasanten Modern- Jazz-Strom zu münden, statuiert der Youngster die sich stets erneuernde Vitalität dieses musikalischen Genres.​" (Stereo)

Joey Alexander
Born in Bali, Indonesia, Joey Alexander has been performing professionally since 2013 when he was invited by Wynton Marsalis to perform at the Jazz at Lincoln Center Gala. Alexander subsequently moved to New York City and released his debut album, My Favorite Things, in 2015 on Motéma Music, followed by three more on the label and a fifth on Verve. Alexander’s albums have netted three GRAMMY® Award nominations – one for Best Jazz Instrumental Album (My Favorite Things), and two for Best Improvised Jazz Solo (“Giant Steps,” from My Favorite Things, and “Countdown” from the album of the same name) – with My Favorite Things and Countdown securing the No. 1 spot on the Billboard jazz charts and Eclipse coming at No. 3.

Over the course of his astonishing career, Alexander has performed with Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding at the Obama White House, for President Bill Clinton at the Arthur Ashe Learning Center Gala, at the Grand Ole Opry, the Apollo Theater, Carnegie Hall and at major jazz festivals and night clubs around the world. He has also been the subject of profiles on 60 Minutes and The New York Times. Origin is Alexander’s first album for Mack Avenue Records and will be released May 20 digitally and on CD, with a vinyl release scheduled for June 24.
