Grammy-nominated jazz pianist Joey Alexander’s major label debut album WARNA is out now on Verve Records. The title translates as “colour” from the feted musician’s native Bahasa language. WARNA showcases a collection of Alexander’s reflective and moving original music, and shows his growing confidence as a musician and bandleader. It captures the joy of music-making that he shares with his fellow trio members, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Kendrick Scott. The new album will arrive in the wake of his four earlier releases that earned Alexander no fewer than three Grammy nominations as well as critics’ and readers’ poll victories in both DownBeat and JazzTimes. Also joining the core piano trio on several tracks on WARNA are Venezuelan-born percussion Luisito Quintero and flautist Anne Drummond.
