The Jazz Professors: Blues and Cubes

Read "Blues and Cubes" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Yes, the Florida-based Jazz Professors, as befits the name, are smart—but don't let that throw you. They also swing in the best jazz tradition, even though their fourth album, Blues and Cubes, was inspired by the art of Pablo Picasso. Unlike Picasso's works, however, there is scant abstraction here; the Professors embody far more bop than ...

Between them, longtime collaborators (and University of Central Florida professors), saxophonist Jeff Rupert and pianist Richard Drexler have played on hundreds of recordings ranging from Diane Schuur, Mel Torme, Sam Rivers, Mose Allison, Tony Bennett and the Woody Herman Orchestra, to name just a few.
