Firefly is an album by American flautist Jeremy Steig recorded in 1977 and released on the CTI label.

The Allmusic review stated “Jeremy Steig’s jazz-funk throwdown, Firefly, is one of the great forgotten masterpieces of the genre… Firefly was designed for the purpose of being a hit in the dance clubs, and it should have been, because it kicks ass on that level as well as on the jazz-funk beam… This is burning”.
