Clarity 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.
Winds of Change Description // After appearing on Lauren Sevian’s Bliss, Something Blue’s Maximum Enjoyment, and Lioness’ Pride and Joy, Winds of Change is Alexa Tarantino’s first release as a leader for Posi-Tone Records. Christian Sands, Joe Martin, Rudy Royston, and special guest Nick Finzer join Tarantino in bringing her compositions and favorites to life. Winds of Change features a diverse array of styles and highlights Tarantino’s skills as a woodwind doubler through her alto saxophone, soprano saxophone, and alto flute playing.
Crossing Paths Description // Crossing Paths is the first record from jazz saxophone and piano duo, Alexa Tarantino and Dariusz Terefenko. It was released in January 2015 on Alexa’s record label, Infinite Records. The album explores the potential of interactive improvisation using lesser-known standard tunes as well as 20th-century post-tonal compositions and original material. Tarantino/Terefenko has since traveled the globe performing and teaching as Artists in Residence at the Academy of Music in Krakow, The Hartt School, SUNY Oswego, the Jazz Education Network’s Fifth Annual Conference, Saint Peter’s Church in NYC, and the Hartford Public Library’s Baby Grand Jazz Series.
