Amazed and Smitten

I've learned about Joey Alexander from a recent issue of Time magazine. This Indonesian boy got a keyboard as a gift when he was around six and started playing jazz tunes that he overheard his parents listening to. And turned out he is amazing at that. His parents tried hiring a piano teacher but that was not very useful - the boy tried to improvise on classical music and the teacher did not like that. :) Joey is now 13 and to see him play is like watching a miracle. Is he another proof of reincarnation? How on earth is it possible to be so talented at such age? When you watch these, remember, the boy is self-taught!

Below is a whole hour of Joey amazingness. He is so cute, oh my god! So small and his smile and natural way of being are beautiful.
