“[Joey Alexander is] not just remarkably capable for his age; he’s a deeply thoughtful soloist and a lush chordal colorist, period.”
- ​The New York Times

“Lori Henriques’ songs stand out for their intelligence and empathy.”
- ​All Things Considered, NPR

Legion of Peace is an exciting new album of children’s music inspired by Nobel Peace laureates, performed by some of the most compelling musicians on today’s international jazz scene. Singer-songwriter Lori Henriques (2015 GRAMMY ® Award Nominee, Best Children’s Album) has written beautiful, timely songs about some of our planet’s greatest peacemakers, conveying life-lessons via hummable tunes that resonate for all ages.

Lori’s quintet on the album is helmed by three-time GRAMMY ® -nominated teenage piano phenom Joey Alexander, and includes Eddie Barbash (saxophone) and Joe Saylor (drums) – known nationally for their work in the house band on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert . Appearing as featured guests are fellow Motéma artists Pedrito Martinez , a GRAMMY ® nominated Cuban music innovator, and Oran Etkin, acclaimed clarinetist and founder of the innovative Timbalooloo children’s music method.

With musical portraits of beloved laureates Desmond Tutu, Malala Yousafzai, Leymah Gbowee, Jimmy Carter, and four others, the album is an entertaining call to action to work towards peace and justice in whatever ways we can, large or small. Interspersed throughout the songs are solo-piano interludes improvised by Joey Alexander, and the lead track is a moving spoken-word introduction by laureateMuhammad Yunus, the captivating creator of the microcredit movement who is known affectionately throughout the world as the “Banker to the Poor.” Dr. Yunus’ introduction invites listeners to let the spirit of peacemaking that courses through the album inspire them to work for peace and justice in their own communities.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
