Joey Alexander + Noemi Nuti
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.
Born in New York City and of Italian descent, Noemi Nuti 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 album, Venus Eye is a celebration of the female perspective in song form, fusing influences from Joni Mitchell and Esperanza Spalding.
