Stanley Baird (click image above for artist info):
Stanley Baird, as an acclaimed musician, composer and entertainer, has not only become a household item in his home state of North Carolina but he has also achieved wide recognition as an educator at both the public and university level. Stanley has shared the concert stage with his mentor Donald Byrd, Najee, Alex Bugnon, Regina Belle, Richard Elliot, Brian McKnight, Kirk Whalum, Kim Waters, The O'Jays and the late George Howard. During his teaching tenure in St.Croix of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Stanley was able to quench his thirst for West Indian and Latin music. This influence is heard through his music. Stanley has had airplay on at least three hundred Quiet Storm and Urban radio programs and one soap opera The Guiding Light. He received reviews and articles in Bre, Billboard, and the Gavin Report. Throughout his career, Baird has covered every aspect of jazz, using his gift to create music with heart. Stanley created the STANLEY BAIRD YOUTH JAZZ FOUNDATION because he believes jazz can be kept alive through young rising instrumentalists and vocalists. Baird 's philosophy is "Listening to music is good for the soul and the mind...don't do drugs, get your high on soothing, inspirational music."
In 1991, Stanley formed The Stanley Baird Group and since then Stanley has released six albums with Traffic Jam being the latest release.
