Joey Alexander, the Grammy-nominated jazz pianist, composer and bandleader recently unveiled 'Warna' via Verve Records, which showcases the growing confidence of Alexander as a musician/bandleader as he effortlessly leads the group through this album.   Translating as "color" from Alexander's native language of Bahasa, WARNA follows four Motéma Music albums that garnered the pianist three Grammy nominations and such honors as historic critics' and readers' poll victories in DownBeat and JazzTimes. Joining Alexander on the new album are Larry Grenadier and Kendrick Scott, who comprise the core piano trio. On several tracks, Venezuelan-born percussion Luisito Quintero, and flautist Anne Drummond, join the burgeoning jazz pianist.
