NPR announces surprise Joey Alexander album!

NPR announced the new Joey Alexander album, Joey. Monk. Live!, a celebration of Thelonious Monk’s centennial. The album, recorded live in June 2017, captures Joey’s trio exploring Monk’s music in imaginative and deeply-felt ways.

“Alexander has an obvious affinity with Monk’s music, embracing the buoyancy and angularity that have long been among its trademarks.” -Nate Chinen, NPR
