Joey Alexander

Born in Bali, Indonesia, Joey Alexander has been performing professionally since 2013
when Wynton Marsalis invited him 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, a
fifth on Verve as well as his Mack Avenue debut album, Origin, in 2022. 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 nightclubs around the world with top-
shelf collaborators like Larry Grenadier, Kendrick Scott, Chris Potter and many others.

He has also been the subject of profiles on 60 Minutes and The New York Times.
