The youngest jazz artist ever nominated for a Grammy Award, thrilling pianist-composer Joey Alexander is coming to the EFG London Jazz Festival to showcase original work from his latest releases and personalised interpretations of great songs.
Alexander’s latest album Warna, translating as ‘colour’ from his native language of Bahasa, follows four Motéma albums that garnered the pianist three Grammy nominations and such honours as historic critics’ and readers’ poll victories in DownBeat and JazzTimes.
Alexander released two of his three new singles SALT and Under the Sun earlier this year, with Summer Rising scheduled for late May. SALT featured Alexander on Fender Rhodes electric piano – for the first time on a recording – along with his latest rhythm section of Daniel Winshall (electric and upright bass) and Tyson D. Jackson (drums).
Born in New York City and of Italian descent, Noemi Nuti is a well-established jazz vocalist based in London. A finalist at the Worshipful Company of Musicians, she has received wide critical acclaim touring the UK, headlining festivals and supporting Brazilian legend Marcos Valle. Noemi has also performed nationally and internationally as lead vocalist in Andrew McCormack’s Graviton. Noemi’s second album, Venus Eye, is a celebration of the female perspective in song form, fusing influences from artists such as Joni Mitchell and Esperanza Spalding.
