If you haven’t yet heard Joey Alexander play the piano, well, it’s time you do.
Joey's scheduled to headline the Newport Jazz Festival this summer.
He lives in New York, but he was born far removed from New York's swinging jazz scene on the Indonesian island of Bali. He likes to swim and watch movies. He wears sneakers and blue framed glasses.
Here’s the thing. “I’m 11 years old,” says Joey. “I started playing piano when I was 6, but I already heard music before that, when I was a baby.”
