Joe Alterman is a young 30ish jazz pianist who has been making a big impression in recent times.

Born in Atlanta, he earned degrees from New York University and has been part of the New York jazz scene for the past decade.

A well-rounded pianist who has mostly led his own trios in the New York area (in addition to performing with Houston Person and Les McCann), Alterman is in fine form throughout his May 17, 2020 LiveStream.

He performs several originals which are rhythmically catchy (one can understand why Ramsey Lewis and Monty Alexander are among his fans), does a fine job with a stride version of “Memories Of You” (which he dedicates to Nat Hentoff) and a swinging “Mean To Me,” tells some colorful stories between his piano solos, and concludes the performance by taking a surprise vocal on “If I Had You” and swinging his way through “You Are My Sunshine.”

It makes for an enjoyable hour of often rollicking jazz piano music.

– Scott Yanow
