Joey Alexander & Ramsey Lewis
(Joey Alexander Trio And 
The Ramsey Lewis Quartet)

Showcasing the extraordinary talents of two generations spanning six decades, the reigning king of jazz piano, Ramsey Lewis and his quintet, will be joined by 14-year-old jazz piano prodigy Joey Alexander and his trio.

An iconic leader in the contemporary jazz movement for over 50 years, Ramsey Lewis has had a prolific career recording over 80 albums since his debut release, Ramsey Lewis & His Gentlemen of Jazz, back in 1956. He successfully crossed over to the pop and R&B charts with hits such as “The ‘In’ Crowd,” “Wade in the Water,” and “Hang on Sloopy,” with his unforgettable trademark sound – funky, soulful jazz.

Joey Alexander is one of the fastest and youngest rising stars in jazz today. At just 14 years old, he has already earned two GRAMMY Award nominations for his debut album, My Favorite Things. He is a master of improvisation with a deft touch and adventurous spirit that belies his age. “Joey is a little genius…playing with emotional depth like that of above a young adult.”  - Wynton Marsalis
