He doesn’t like the “prodigy” tag, but it’s hard to find another word more appropriate to astonishing 13-year-old pianist Joey Alexander (right). Born and raised in Bali, Indonesia, a nine-year-old Alexander played for Herbie Hancock while on a visit to the island, and the elder man immediately recognised a fellow pianist. So Joey and his parents left paradise behind and settled in New York, where his technical mastery and unusual musical maturity is making every other piano player there feel just a little sick. Now a major, Grammy-nominated recording star with two bestselling albums under his belt, the diminutive pianist arrives in Dublin with his trio, featuring Willie Jones III on drums and Alex Claffy on bass.
