Artist: Alexa Tarantino Quartet
Personnel: Alexa Tarantino, Woodwinds; Steven Feifke, Piano; Joe Martin, Bass; Rudy Royston, Drums.
Description: Woodwind virtuoso Alexa Tarantino moves straight forward with “Clarity,” on her second release for Posi-Tone. With an evocative display of talent over a wide range of instruments, Tarantino clearly demonstrates that her skills in songwriting and performance are elevating and shining steadily with bright moments. Tarantino is focused as a bandleader and relaxed as a soloist in front of the rhythm section of pianist Steven Feifke, bassist Joe Martin, and drummer Rudy Royston. With an engaging musical program presented by an amazing group of players, Tarantino’s latest album encourages jazz enthusiasts to experience the “Clarity” of her musical message with amazement and delight.
