Support live music – even when it’s streamed!

One of the most promising young saxophonists on the scene today, Alexa Tarantino earned degrees from Juilliard and the Eastman School of Music and has worked with Cecile McLorin Salvant, Diva, Ulysses Owens, Arturo O’Farrill’s Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra the Verve Jazz Ensemble, Chris Teal, Lioness, and baritonist Lauren Sevian (with whom she co-leads LSAT).

As a leader, Alexa Tarantino has headed two albums thus far: Winds Of Change and Clarity.

On her LiveStream from June 6, 2020, she performs duets with pianist Steven Feifke including “Through” (in which she plays flute), the uptempo “A Unified Front” (highlighted by some heated alto-piano tradeoffs), a beautiful bolero also on alto, and a Feifke original.

This LiveStream is filled with inventive and swinging modern jazz.
