"Tarantino's forthcoming debut album, "Winds of Change," announces this young alto saxophonist as a composer of sharply plotted but gracefully unencumbered straight-ahead jazz [...] an announcement of her lovely, ardent way of improvising." -THE NEW YORK TIMES
Award-winning young jazz saxophonist Alexa Tarantino brings the music of her debut album Winds of Change for our finale event of this year's 23Arts in the Snow series. Tarantino performs regularly in a wide variety of ensembles and genres including Sherrie Maricle & the DIVA Jazz Orchestra, Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra (holding a weekly residency at Birdland Jazz Club), Cécile McLorin Salvant’s OGRESSE, LSAT (her new quintet co-led with baritone saxophonist Lauren Sevian), and the Alexa Tarantino Quartet.
Featuring pianist Steven Feifke.
