Rick Standley

Rick Standley is one of Scotland’s most versatile bass players – equally at home in jazz and in classical groups. For thirty-one years Rick has been principal bass with the orchestra of Scottish Ballet, a position he took up at the exceptionally young age of 29. 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. He was recently made an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in London - awarded to alumni of the Academy who have distinguished themselves in the music profession and made a significant contribution in their particular field.

Rick lives in North Ayrshire. His hobbies include sailing and gardening. In November ’08 the group premiered his composition “Cycles and Freewheels”.
