Jeff Cascaro

Jeff Cascaro, born in 1968, started his career at the young age of 18 as the winner of a youth jazz contest. He gained experience as a background singer and guest musician with the NDR and Rias Big Bands, as well as with German stars like Ute Lemper, die Fantastischen Vier, Sasha, Joe Sample of the Crusaders, Götz Alsmann, Klaus Doldinger's band Passport, the Guano Apes, and Paul Kuhn – just to name a few, as they stand for Cascaro's wide spectrum in music of different genres. One thing that has never changed about him is that he unmistakebly wears his heart right next to his soul. Since 2000 the versatile practicioner also works academically: he is a professor of jazz singing at the "Franz List" Conservatory in Weimar. His CD debut in his own name was carefully prepared by Cascaro – here he showed at last what it means to him to have the Soul of a Singer. His 2nd album "Mother and Brother" was released in 2008. This album dealt with the fateful ups and downs in life. His 3rd LP "The Other Man" will be released in February 2012. After a Big Band album with the hr-Big Band from 2014, Jeff Cascaro will release his first jazz album "Love & Blues in the City" in 2017.
