Sunday Waltz - Joey Alexander

It would be just perfect Sunday afternoon with a cup of coffee and good book, and Joey's mellow jazz on repeat.
Joey Alexander, 13 years old boy from Indonesia, now based in New York jazz pianist is well known as the youngest nominee(when he was 12 years old) for the Grammy Awards Best Jazz Instrumental Album for ‘My Favorite Things’ and Improvised Jazz Solo for ‘Giant Steps’.
He began playing piano at the age of six while he was growing up in Indonesia. His father, amateur pianist played jazz and Joey picked up Thelonius Monk's "Well, You Needn't" by ear.

Joey is releasing his second album, "Countdown", as well as his original composition "Sunday Waltz," on Sept. 16.
