This is the third of a series of four solo piano dates featuring Richard Drexler at the Blue Bamboo in 2019.
A professor of Jazz Studies at UCF, Richard has played on around 200 recordings; played piano in the Woody Herman Orchestra for over twenty years; was the bassist in trios of Kenny Drew Jr., Dick Hyman and others. His live duo recording with UCF Director of Jazz Studies, Jeff Rupert, placed high on all the national jazz radio tracking charts for most of 2017.
Richard is one of just over a hundred players profiled in The New Face of Jazz, a Billboard (Random House) book by Cicily Janus with forewords by jazz legends Wynton Marsalis, Marcus Miller and Sonny Rollins, and has played with 40 of the other featured players.
