Rick Standley is one of Scotland’s most versatile bass players – equally at home in jazz and in classical groups. For many years Rick has been principal bass with the orchestra of Scottish Ballet. At the same time he has freelanced with all the other Scottish orchestras. He has been a member of number of jazz and blues groups in Scotland – including Rev Doc and the Congregation, the D S Murray Quartet and Bag ‘O Cats.
Rick lives in North Ayrshire. His hobbies include sailing and gardening. In November ’08 the group premiered his composition “Cycles and Freewheels”.
