BLUES AND CUBES, the fourth album from THE JAZZ PROFESSORS on Flying Horse Records, is inspired by the profound art of Pablo Picasso. The album explores Picasso’s work in parallel with groundbreaking 20th century jazz. It features original tracks from The Jazz Professors alongside compositions by Sidney Bechet and Charlie Parker.



UCF's Flying Horse Big Band celebrates the legacy of Ray Charles on "Florida Rays," out today. Joined by a host of distinguished guest artists and under the direction of Jeff Rupert, the FHBB serves up fresh takes of classic, melodic tunes.
The music of Ray Charles appeals to a wide audience: R&B, pop, country and jazz. This is the band's seventh release with Flying Horse Records, and follow chart-toppers like Good News! and The Bat Swings.






Good News! is the Flying Horse Big Band’s 6th album and its first studio collaboration with the UCF Studio Orchestra. Jeff “T-Bone” Gerard, guest vocalist on the band’s 2015 album Into the Mystic, returns for a beautiful rendering of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” The music centers on work by the masters: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Bob Mintzer.  









Flying Horse Big Band presents ’60s superhero songs with new arrangements by Michael Philip Mossman, Harry Allen, Mark Taylor and more.
The Bat Swings! features music from the classic Batman series starring Adam West and Burt Ward.








The Flying Horse big band releases its fourth album for Flying Horse records, with special guest tenor sax sensation Harry Allen. The album includes bossa nova’s, ballads, and several originals penned for the Flying Horse Big Band.




Into the Mystic features both repertory works and new works, including a suite for Miles Davis and James Brown, and vocals from T-Bone. The album presents remakes of classics by Marvin Gaye, The Beatles, The Neville Brothers, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Van Morrison.


The debut release from Flying Horse Records...The Flying Horse Big Band (formerly the UCF Jazz Ensemble I), comprised of freshmen, sophomores, and a few juniors in the emerging Jazz Studies program, recorded seven pieces with director Jeff Rupert.
The Flying Horse Big Band returns with a second full-length CD. With The Blues is Alright, these young performers pay tribute to musicians of the past. They also contribute to the jazz legacy with three original songs.


En Plein Air, a French expression meaning “in open air,” is the third album from The Jazz Professors. It is a themed recording inspired by the art of Claude Monet. These songs debuted at the UCF-Orlando Jazz Festival.


Having performed, recorded and toured with a veritable “who’s who” of the jazz realm, the Jazz Professors return with their second album Do That Again. The new release features an expanded set list and a larger repertory of players.


These musicians contradict Mencken’s adage: “Those who can–do. Those who can’t–teach.” Recorded live at the UCF-Orlando Jazz Festival on March 20, 2010, featuring a guest appearance from preeminent saxophonist Grant Stewart.




Light up the grill, hop in the pool or head to the beach! UCF Music’s Steel Band, Black Steel, has released their new album that is perfect for all of your “Summer Knights.” The album features the music of Jimmy Buffet, The Beach Boys, Christopher Cross, UB40 and more!



Black Steel is lead by music faculty member, Kirk Gay. “Creating Summer Knights was a great learning experience for the members of the band. Recording in our new UCF Recording Studios was such a treat. Dr. Tommy Harrison was our recording technician and it was so great to work with him and have the students learn what it is like to go through the recording process. It was also fun to include some of our outstanding faculty and alumni by featuring solos by Professor Richard Drexler and Dean Jeff Moore and alumnus Ryan Boehme ’19 on the album. The album has a Florida/Yacht Rock theme to it, so it is great to listen to while at the beach, pool or while enjoying the summer fun!”




Patterns is the debut release from the UCF percussion studio. The album features new works for mallet quartet (two marimbas and two vibraphones) composed by Marc Mellits, Jonathan Kolm, Scott Linderoth, Thad Anderson, and Paul Lansky.

A collection of flash fiction by Michael Chin, Autopsy and Everything After has been published by The Florida Review as the winner of the 2017-2018 Jeanne Leiby Chapbook Contest. 

As noted by final contest judge Juan Martinez:


"There is so much pathos and beauty and good humor in these pieces. I loved spending time with these people, how they surprised me, how much I learned about the itinerant wrestling world and how that world contains all of ours—our dead fathers, our lost exes, our fears and hopes."
