RealTracks Artist Bio: Jack Stafford


Jazz musician Jack Stafford has long been a fixture of the Vancouver music scene on alto saxophone, flute, and clarinet – and soprano, tenor, and baritone saxes as the occasion demands. He is a versatile player who can cover multiple styles including Dixieland, Swing, Bop, and West Coast ⁄ Cool. As a first-call player, Jack has played in every setting from clubs to concert halls with studio and recording work for major broadcast networks and record labels.

Jack has played for a who′s who of international music and entertainment greats, and regularly with his own band and top local groups like the all-star Jazz ensemble Pacific Salt, the Ian McDougall Big Band, the Jill Townsend Big Band, Dal Richards and Friends, Donnie Clark Quintet, SwingStreet, and even the nostalgic dance band led by Canada′s late "King of Swing," Mart Kenney and The New Ballroom Orchestra.

Jack Stafford plays great Tenor Sax solos in a mainstream Jazz style, not unlike Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, or Sonny Rollins. This laid-back, spacey style is typical of the 50s and 60s. He is also known as a fan and interpreter of Cannonball Adderley.

This RealTracks soloist works very well for genres like Standards, Jazz, and swing Pop tunes from the 40s to the 80s.
