Pianist Dariusz Terefenko is a professor at the Eastman School of Music; saxophonist Alexa Tarantino is an Eastman graduate. Over Tarantino's years at the school the two formed a musical bond that resulted in a wonderful album, "Crossing Paths." Terefenko is known for his breathtaking dexterity at the piano. Tarantino's reputation for adventurous solos led to an appearance with Earth, Wind & Fire at the 2014 Jazz Festival. At Kilbourn they will play standards and originals from their album.
