      EVENT DETAILS
      Joe Alterman


      A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Joe Alterman studied music at New York University, where he received both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Jazz Piano Performance. In addition to performances with Houston Person, Les McCann and his own trio at venues including the Kennedy Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Birdland and the Blue Note, Alterman has opened, many times, for Ramsey Lewis. Alterman has also opened for Dick Gregory, Norah Jones, John Pizzarelli and Philip Bailey (of Earth, Wind And Fire), among others. Only 30 years old, Alterman has released five critically-acclaimed albums, his most recent being 2018's "More Cornbread". He was profiled three times by iconic journalist Nat Hentoff and was the subject of Hentoffs very last piece on music in March 2016. Dick Cavett has referred to Alterman as one fine, first class entertainer and Ramsey Lewis has called Alterman an inspiration to me and his piano playing a joy to behold. Also a budding journalist and Director of the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival, Hentoff called one of Alterman's columns on jazz "one of the very best pieces on the essence of jazz, the spirt of jazz, that I've ever read, and I'm not exaggerating."
