About the Musicians:
Alexa is an award-winning, vibrant, young jazz saxophonist, woodwind doubler, composer and educator.  She is described by The New York Times as having a “lovely, ardent way of improvising,” which allows her individual voice to shine through as a dynamic performer.   Alexa will be accompanied on the piano by Steven Feifke, described by JAZZIZ Magazine as “[a] masterful pianist with an acute sense of harmony… powerful presence whether soloing or comping.”
