One of the most in demand musicians in the UK, the genial talents of Ross Stanley on any keyboard instrument is a sheer delight.
Ross is one of the UK's top jazz pianists - constantly in demand for his flowing creative and lyrical playing. His soloing is profoundly steeped in complex harmonic tension and release but always serves the music and is universally revered by both fellow musicians and the wider listening public alike.
Ross Stanley began having piano lessons at the age of 4. At the age of 13, he was awarded an organ scholarship to Marlborough College. Upon leaving Marlborough, Ross was invited to study for his music degree at several renowned institutions including Trinity College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in the USA. However, he decided to stay in London and completed a BMUS in classical and jazz piano at Guildhall in 2004. Since leaving, Ross's musical skills have kept him in high demand, seeing him playing with jazz names such as Will Vinson, Dennis Rollins, Guy Barker, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Stan Sulzman, SteveArguelles, John Paracelli, Bobby Wellins, Clark Tracey as well as being a regular member of the Jim Mullen Organ trio and the Jaqui Dankworth Band and performing in many small and large ensembles - including Nostalgia 77 Octet and The Heritage Orchestra.
