Mentored by Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, and Wynton Marsalis, Joey Alexander is the brightest light in jazz piano – a young star whose expressive range and musical maturity at age 18 is astounding to behold. He returns with music from his sixth album and 2022 Mack Avenue debut, Origin, backed by a superlative trio including bassist Kris Funn and drummer John Davis.

Since his U.S. debut in 2014 at the Jazz at Lincoln Center gala, the Bali-born pianist has rocketed to stardom via a performance on the 2016 GRAMMY awards, a feature segment on 60 Minutes, and a performance with Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding at the White House in celebration of International Jazz Day. His 2015 debut release, My Favorite Things, received two GRAMMY nominations, making Alexander the youngest artist ever nominated for a GRAMMY in the jazz category.

Made up of 10 tracks written by Alexander and featuring a band including Gilad Hekselman, Larry Grenadier, and SFJAZZ Collective members Chris Potter and Kendrick Scott, Origin marks the fully realized vision of the pianist as an accomplished and thoughtful composer. The album signifies Alexander’s unreserved emergence as a seasoned veteran and creative force in jazz whose musical life is only just beginning.

Joey Alexander evinces a deftness of touch, wit and, most important, emotional depth that would seem well beyond his years.
