Joey Alexander Trio

Wednesday, 12 October 2022 - The 2022-23 Jazz series from Arts Commons presents an evening of undeniable talent from the Jack Singer Concert Hall stage with the Calgary debut of the Joey Alexander Trio. P iano virtuoso Joey Alexander must be seen live to be believed! Known for fingers that virtually fly over the keys, Joey Alexander has rocked the music world with his seemingly effortless talent and musical sophistication from a young age. Not many jazz musicians can boast three Grammy Award nominations before age 16 or five studio albums to their fame before they’re 20 – but Joey can. At only 10 years old, he was hand-picked to mentor under jazz heavyweight Wynton Marsalis and now he is strengthening his reputation as the future of modern jazz at age 19 with his 2022 release, Origin – his debut as both a composer and band leader. - Event Details
