Ross Stanley 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.

Born in 1982 in Frimley, Ross is a widely respected pianist and organist, and a frequent performer at FJC. In 1998 he was awarded an organ scholarship to Marlborough College. Later he decided to stay in London, and completed a BMUS in classical and jazz piano at Guildhall in 2004.  Ross’s skills have kept him in high demand, seeing him play with people such as Will Vinson, Dennis Rollins, Guy Barker, Joel Frahm, Liane Carroll, Stan Sulzman, Steve Arguelles, John Paracelli, Bobby Wellins, Clark Tracey, as well as being a regular member of the Jim Mullen and Nigel Price Organ groups.
