"If the word 'genius' still means anything, it applies to this prodigy. He played his own solo variations on 'Round Midnight' with a breathtaking precocity and mastery of several decades of piano style." – Allen Morrison, DownBeat Magazine
For Winton Marsalis, Joey's genius remains a mystery. "Why? We don't know why," he tells Anderson Cooper on CBS' 60 Minutes. "I once asked Miles Davis about sound. 'Man, how you get the sound you get?' He said, 'Man, nobody knows about sound. Sound just is.' And I think that about his abilities."
"Mozart is the archetype of the child musical genius. Over the centuries, many successors have been proclaimed. [Joey Alexander] In the long run, few have qualified. The current child-genius nominee is Joey Alexander, a pianist from the Indian Ocean Island of Bali." – Doug Ramsey, Arts Journal
“Technically fluent and harmonically astute” – The New York Times
“Magnificent not only for the child’s virtuosity – plenty of prodigies have outsized chops – but for the maturity and perception he brought” – Jazz Time
