At the risk of sounding like a doddery old relative, it’s important to remember that Joey Alexander will one day become an adult. Except on the day of the release of Warna, his fourth (yes, fourth) studio album, this talented young prodigy will ONLY be 16! Born in Bali in 2003, Alexander lived in Jakarta between the ages of 8 and 10 before moving to New York in 2014, where he experienced the most meteoric career rise a jazz musician has ever seen. Commended by masters of the calibre of Herbie Hancock and Wynton Marsalis, he released three impeccable studio albums, published on Motema: My Favorite Things in 2015, Countdown in 2016 and Eclipse in 2018, all veritably impressive jazz albums and not just flukes. Marking his entry in the prestigious Verve roster, Warna is just as impressive. Present by his side (since the beginning) is double bassist Larry Grenadier, with Kendrick Scott on the drums and, on certain tracks, Venezuelan percussionist Luisito Quintero and flautist Anne Drummond. In Bahasa, the language of his native Indonesia, warna means colour: his expressive piano certainly isn’t lacking any. You can almost hear his transition into adulthood through his fingers. Always under Hancock’s influence when playing, Joey Alexander has penned all the tracks here, with the exception of covers of Joe Henderson (Inner Urge) and Sting (Fragile): proof of his talents as a composer, an area not always mastered by his colleagues. All in all, he’s on the way up. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

WES SIDE STORIES: The best musical moments in Wes Anderson’s films

Anderson's films can be polarizing: Charming or cloying, depending on your point of view. But if you're a fan, you no doubt appreciate the director's (and frequent collaborator, music supervisor Randall Poster's) obvious love of music—some of it as well known as Paul Simon or the frequently used Rolling Stones; some of it if-you-know-you-know cult classics.

Prog Rock in 10 Albums

Influence is a shapeless thing, moving and rearranging based on sounds from the past and how they align with sounds from the present. In the case of progressive rock, a genre relocated from the pop charts to sheet music stands and art rock-favored stereos over the past four decades, influence has shifted in a similar way—later records that expanded the lexicon have lapped previous records with the incorporation of new styles, cultures and their corresponding sounds. Prog may not be burning up the rock charts, but you can see the everlasting influence of the genre in bands ranging from Tool to Kanye West and beyond. With that said, here are ten crucial progressive rock releases for 2021 and beyond.
