    Event Description:
    Born June 25, 2003, on the island of Bali, Josiah Alexander Sila began teaching himself to play piano at the age of six using a mini electronic keyboard. He was immediately able to pick out the melody of Monk’s “Well, You Needn’t.” At age nine, Joey won the grand prize at the first Master-Jam Fest, an all-ages competition in Ukraine which included 200 competitors from 17 countries. An invitation from Wynton Marsalis led to his 2014 US debut, an appearance at Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he amazed the audience with his musicality. Joey’s 2015 debut album, My Favorite Things, garnered two Grammy nominations for Best Jazz Instrumental Album and Best Improvised Solo for his performance of John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps,” making him the youngest jazz artist ever nominated for a Grammy.
