Part of our Summer Concert Series, this show is in partnership with the City of Casselberry in their beautiful new gallery the Casselberry Arts Center.

Jeff Rupert is a Yamaha performing artist, record producer, recording artist, freelance tenor saxophonist, full-time professor, Director of Jazz Studies at UCF. He leads the Flying Horse Big Band, and maintains a busy recording and performing schedule with his quartet, and as an in-demand sideman and band leader with a variety of notables. A gifted composer and arranger, Rupert is well heeled in jazz traditions from his many experiences over the years playing with greats like Benny Golson, Maynard Ferguson, and Kevin Mahogany, to name a few.

A regular at Blue Bamboo since near the very beginning, Jeff and his group (Richard Drexler on piano, Ben Kramer on bass, and Marty Morrell on drums) represent everything we stand for... excellence, beauty, and class.

Jeff has recorded over 100 albums, and has recorded and toured with jazz singers Diane Schuur, Mel Tormé, Kevin Mahogany, Veronica Swift, T-Bone, and Ernestine Anderson. He is a featured soloist on Benny Carter’s Grammy winning album Harlem Renaissance. Jeff Rupert’s 11 recordings as a leader have all charted on Jazz Week, and Let’s Sail Away (his CD with Veronica Swift that preceded the young phenom's worldwide success) reached #1.
